Chocolate Covered Cherry Magpie Recipe
I told you guys a few weeks ago about one of my all time favorite Magpies – the Pizza magpie recipe. Well, today I wanted to share my favorite dessert magpie. Chocolate Covered Cherry…YUM! I know some folks call these Hobo pies – or maybe you have some other fun term for them, but we have always called them magpies 🙂 These are fabulous for camping and with Labor Day right around the corner, I thought this was the perfect recipe to share! If you have one of those sandwich makers – you can always make a less “full” version of these in those too.
- 1 Can of Cherry Pie Filling
- 1 Hershey Bar
- 1 Marshmallow
- Stick of butter
- 2 pieces of bread
- Magpie makers
- Heat the magpie maker in the fire
- Take a stick of butter rub onto the edges and the center of the maker (this will prevent the bread from sticking)
- Place a piece of bread on either side of the maker
- Fill ONE side of the maker/bread with all your toppings – I recommend starting with the cherry pie filling, then 6 pieces of the chocolate bar spread out evenly within the maker, and a HALF of a marshmallow pulled apart into pieces
- Put the other piece of bread on top of the filled side when you are done
- Place the other side of the maker on the top and securely close your maker
- Pull off the extra bread that is hanging over the side if you are using a circle maker (I personally prefer the circle makers)
- Cook over the fire – I personally recommend not cooking directly over a flame. This will prevent burns and lead to a slower and more even cook.
- Check it every few minutes
- Take out when both sides of the bread are a golden brown
- Take your first bite with caution – just in case it’s super hot!
As I mentioned in the magpie recipe, I prefer the circle makers, I just think that they seal better. Need some makers? You can find them on Amazon. I definitely recommend the wood handles!
