Chocolate-Covered Winter Fruit Pie FAQs
How long does this pie last?
Assuming your pie isn't gobbled up all in one sitting, you can store the leftovers for up to 1 week. Keep the pie in an airtight container or wrapped in pllastic wrap or a beeswax wrap in the fridge until you're ready to eat it again.
Do I have to use chocolate chips?
You don't have to use chocolate chips in your pie. Simply make it into a mince pie without any toppings, or just use the crumble on top. You could also try putting a second pie crust on top of your pie in place of the crumble!
