Gluten Free Chocolate Covered Strawberry Pie

Gluten Free Chocolate Covered Strawberry Pie #glutenfree

Last week, I spotted a great deal on strawberries at Sam’s Club. I picked up a ton of them and after getting them home it dawned on me that there was no way for me to eat that many before they went bad.Then, the idea of a strawberry pie hit me which was immediately followed by the “ugh, I’m gluten free and can’t have pie crust” thought.

My sister told me about the new Mi-Del Gluten Free Pie Crusts and I ran to the store to pick one up.  There are two choices, ginger snap or chocolate snap, I have no idea what the “snap” is supposed to be but the crust is great. The crust does contain eggs though so if you’re allergic, simply make your own crust or make a crust free version which I also made for my son.

I promise, this pie will be a huge hit with the fam and no one will know that it is gluten free. The recipe below will actually make two pies, one for you and one for the party…or both for you. 🙂

Gluten Free Chocolate Covered Strawberry Pie

Ingredients:

  • 2 Cups Water
  • 2 Cups Turbinado Sugar
  • (2) 3oz. pkg Strawberry Jell-o
  • 4 lbs Strawberries (or 3 quarts-I bought them for $8 at Sam's Club)
  • (2) Mi-Del Chocolate Snap Gluten Free Crust
  • 1 Cup Enjoy Life Dark Chocolate Chips

Directions:

Wash, dry and slice strawberries, lay aside. Bring water, sugar and Jell-o to a boil. Keep stirring until the mixture turns more glaze like and is very thick. Remove from heat and stir in the strawberries.

Pour the strawberries into the pie shells and refrigerate about 30 minutes to let the pie cool. Then, melt the Enjoy Life Dark Chocolate in the microwave for about 2 minutes. Stir until smooth and place in an icing bag or a ziploc bag with the tip cut off and begin to cover the pie in chocolate. You can make designs or cover it any way you'd like. Honestly, the chocolate on top combined with the chocolate crust makes this dessert my absolute favorite.
