Chocolate Covered Strawberry Pie

A few weeks ago, Mrs. Happy Homemaker linked up this delightful recipe – it’s just like Chocolate Covered Strawberries only in pie form.   The minute I saw it, I had to give it a try.

I literally dropped everything, threw my son in the car (well not really threw, but quickly ushered him), and headed to the grocery store to pick up the ingredients I didn’t already have.

Once I got home I was able to whip this pie up in no time flat!  And, it’s a good thing.  Because I had a peanut gallery that was drooling over my shoulder!

Holy cow!  This was just like eating chocolate-covered strawberries!  The chocolately coating on top…the sweet bursts of the berries…the cool soft filling and the crunch from the crust.  Pure, unadulterated yumminess!

Fresh Strawberry Pie

I love that this pie uses fresh strawberries.  There is nothing like getting the freshest strawberries right from the strawberry farm. The flavor seems to be intensified when you pick them right from the vine.

As soon as I get home, I like to wash and prep my berries for use.  For the recipe, I simply had to slice them up.

How to Make Chocolate Covered Strawberry Pie

Since I know I will be making this over and over again, I made a few notes on how I would tweak it.  First and foremost, it is imperative (at least in my opinion) that you use an Oreo pie crust.  The supermarket I went to (not my usual one) didn’t have the Oreo crust.  They only had a chocolate cookie crust.  Not the same.  Splurge on the Oreo.  Trust me.

Secondly, and I know that that this just sounds wrong, but I would cut back on the amount of chocolate that is drizzled on top.  I think the recipe calls for too much *GASP* chocolate.

I can’t believe those words even came out of my mouth.  But, it’s true.  I think the amount of chocolate on top made it very difficult to slice.  It was like a suit of chocolate armor on top.

Which brings me to my next point.  No matter how hard I tried to neatly slice this pie (so that I would have a photo to share with y’all), it was impossible.

When I melted the chocolate for the topping, I put the melted chocolate into a Ziploc bag and snipped one of the corners off, and used it like a pastry bag to drizzle the chocolate.  I highly recommend using this method.

I also recommend only snipping off a very small bit of the corner — so that you get a really fine drizzle.  The thicker the chocolate, the harder it will be to slice.

Bottom line, if you’re making this pie for guests and want to have a beautiful presentation…it’s probably not going to happen.  Don’t get your hopes up.  However, as soon as your guests (or you) taste this pie, you won’t care what it looks like.  You’ll only care about getting the next bite into your mouth as quickly as possible!

One last thing…because this pie is chocked full of fresh strawberries, it will start to get watery if it sits for more than a day or so (like it will last that long).

I think I’ll have to make another one of these VERY soon!  Like, tomorrow!

    • LOL! I wish I was southern! Just pour me a big ‘ole glass of sweet tea and let me make some biscuits! I try to be as honest as I could. Of course, all of my comments are just my humble opinion. Some of the recipes need a little bit of tweaking to work for my family. And, sometimes, I’m able to find tips and tricks to make a recipe easier. 🙂 I hope they help.

  2. This is yummy, but instead of melted choc for the topping, I made a chocolate fudge sauce which didn’t set as hard and can also be poured over individual slices. Chocolate Ice Cream topping also works well.

  3. My husband made this pie last night, but had a problem melting the white chocolate chips. The problem w/ the white chocolate chips (I couldn’t find real white chocolate chips at the store) was melting them. The chips didn’t melt. The mixture got hard and we were never able to drizzle the white chocolate on top of the strawberries. Also, his pie doesn’t look anything like the pie in the picture here. It looks like a gooey mess. LOL! I know it will be edible, but I need to find a white chocolate that will melt and that’s easy to drizzle.

    • So sorry that yours didn’t turn out like the photo. I used the white chocolate candy discs you get at the craft store for mine. They seemed to work alright. I, at least, hope it tasted good! 🙂

    • I wouldn’t substitute chocolate chips in the topping. The color would probably be funky. I would just leave it out all together.
