Salted Chocolate Strawberry Pies

Updated: Mar 8

These little mini-pies have so much wow factor they are the perfect dessert for a special occasion. The fresh strawberries and creamy filling hide a sweet, surprise layer of strawberry preserves and everything is topped off with melted milk chocolate and a sprinkling of pink himalayan salt. Delicious! But here's the best part, these are easy to make and are ready in about 30 minutes.

Salted Chocolate Strawberry Pies

By Melinda Keckler, CrinkledCookbook.Com


1 package of Keebler Graham Ready Crust, one package contains six crusts

4 oz goat cheese

5 oz cream cheese

1/3 cup powdered sugar

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

1 cup milk chocolate chips

1/4 cup white chocolate chips

1/2 tsp coconut oil

1/3 cup strawberry preserves

6-8 large, fresh strawberries, sliced

several dashes of Pink Himalayan Salt


Place goat cheese and cream cheese in a microwave safe bowl. Soften at half power for about 2 minutes until warmed and easy to stir. Add powdered sugar and vanilla extract and whisk to combine. Place mini graham cracker crusts onto a large plate or cookie sheet and add 2-3 teaspoons of strawberry preserves into each crust. Set aside.


In another microwave safe bowl, place milk chocolate chips, white chocolate chips and coconut oil. Microwave on half power for about a minute or until melted and smooth. Add a dash of Pink Himalayan Salt and stir to combine. Spoon cream cheese/goat cheese mixture on top of the strawberry preserves, enough to cover the jam completely and fill the pie crust. Arrange sliced strawberries on top of the cream cheese mixture. Use a small spoon to drizzle the melted chocolate on top of the strawberries then add a dash or two of the Pink Himalayan Salt to garnish. Be careful not to add too much salt, just one or two dashes will do it.


You can serve these right away or, if possible, refrigerate for at least an hour until the chocolate is set and the cream cheese filling is fully chilled.


Makes 6 very cute little pies. :)

I don't often use pre-made pie crusts, but with this recipe I make an exception because these little graham cracker crusts are so light and perfect. The layers and flavors are sweet bliss. You'll probably have more melted chocolate than you need for the tops of the pies. I like to use the extra chocolate to coat the leftover whole strawberries and serve those as a side treat.
