Black Forest Pie
- 1 frozen pie crust
- 1 can cherry pie filling
- 1 1/2 c. port cherry sauce (just make the sauce portion of the recipe!)
- 1/4 c. nutella
- 1/4 c. miniature semi-sweet chocolate chips
Prepare the frozen pie crust according to the package directions for filling with a chilled filling.
While the pie crust is baking, prepare the filling by stirring together the cherry pie filling and the port cherry sauce. It's best if you make the port cherry sauce in advance and chill it, but if you make it during this step, just be ready to chill your pie for an additional hour or two before serving.
After the pie crust has been baked and allowed to cool, carefully spread the nutella evenly over the bottom and up the sides of the prepared crust. Spoon the cherry filling into the crust and finish the pie by sprinkling the top of it with the chocolate chips.
Chill the pie in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours before slicing and serving. If desired, add a dollop of whipped cream to each serving. Store any unused pie in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
