Simple Mini Chocolate Pies

Simple mini chocolate pies are extremely easy and delicious. They only require a few ingredients, several of which you may already have on hand. I got everything to make these pies at my local Super Target. Make them for your family or bring them to a pot-luck or big family dinner. This recipe can easily be doubled.

In our house, we don’t have dessert after every meal. My kids have grown up to not expect that there will be a sweet treat after dinner. Do they ask for dessert most of the time? Yes. However, we really do try to limit desserts. Having said that, I do love making desserts that my family can enjoy occasionally. These simple mini chocolate pies will satisfy your sweet tooth while also not being too sweet. Also, my kids just love that they are so small! There’s just something about mini-food that appeals to most kids!
