Make this Valentine's Day the most delicious one yet!

Things You'll Need

  • Pastry dough for double crust 9-inch pie
  • 1/3 cup HERSHEY'S Cocoa
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 2 tablespoons butter or margarine
  • 1 can (21 oz.) cherry pie filling
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons light corn syrup
  • 1 tablespoon packed light brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon butter or margarine, melted
  • 1 cup coarsely chopped pecans
  • 3/4 cup sweetened whipped cream

How to Make

  • 1. Place cookie sheet in oven; heat oven to 375°F.
  • 2. Roll out pastry on lightly floured surface. Cut out 6 circles about 5-3/4 inches in diameter, rerolling scraps as needed to make 6 circles. Press pastry circles evenly into 4-3/4-inch tart pans with removable bottoms, allowing pastry to extend 1/4-inch above edges of pans; set aside.
  • 3. Stir together cocoa, sugar and water in small saucepan; add 2 tablespoons butter. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly with whisk, until butter melts and mixture is smooth. Cool to room temperature, about 10 minutes. Spread cocoa mixture on bottom of tart shells, dividing evenly. Spoon pie filling over mixture, dividing evenly.
  • 4. Stir together egg, corn syrup, brown sugar and melted butter in small bowl; stir in pecans. Spoon over pie filling, dividing equally. Place tart pans on preheated cookie sheet. Bake 30 minutes or until set and filling is bubbly. Cool completely in pans on wire rack. Remove tarts from pans. Garnish with whipped cream. 6 servings.
