Spring has sprung! Flowers are blooming and birds are singing. I’m singing, too, but it’s not a pretty site, so we’ll keep that bit of news to ourselves, OK? You want to know what is a pretty site? My Chocolate Satin Pie with Chocolate Flowers.
Actually, it’s Marie Callender’s Satin Pie, but what’s hers is mine since they use high-quality ingredients and signature special touches to create meals and desserts that smell, taste and look just like homemade. It’s the perfect dessert for my family to linger at the dinner table and enjoy each other’s company while we talk about our day. The best part? It’s a time saver AND it tastes and smells just like homemade. I also love the special touches like the hand-placed chocolate curls.
I was out snapping photos of my spring crocuses a few days ago and a brilliant idea popped into my mind. Since I already had a Marie Callender’s Chocolate Satin Pie stored in the freezer, I decided to add a special touch by garnishing the pie with chocolate flowers.
Chocolate Satin Pie with Chocolate Flowers
To make the chocolate flowers, I use a candy mold and colored candy melts. If you’re artistic, you can free-hand your chocolate flowers on a sheet of wax paper and allow to dry. I’m not that talented, so I use inexpensive molds.
Melt the candy melts according to the directions on the packaging. Fill the molds and let harden in the fridge for about 15 minutes.
Here’s a look at the chocolate flowers after popping them out of the molds.
