Imagine my surprise when I stumbled on this recipe that would use up 5 leftover items in my pantry or refrigerator! I had to cut the recipe in half due to the amount of cherry pie filling & sweetened condensed milk, but I was able to use up the last bits of open chocolate chip bags, a nearly empty jar of maraschino cherries & a six-pack of mini graham cracker crusts that I couldn't remember buying in the first place. lol The recipe went together very easily & it tasted great! I had to use a combination of mini semi-sweet & milk chocolate chips. But I always buy the milk chocolate cherries anyway. I actually think that the mini crusts worked out well for portion control. Once we'd finished "a whole (mini) pie", our brains were satisfied & didn't want more. We'll be making this again & again. Thanks for posting Susie!

This was so rich and so delicious. I used 1 cup of Hershey Cherry Cordial kisses instead of the plain chocolate chips and it added that extra "punch" of cherry that my family is so fond of. Mine set up fine. I served it with plain Cool Whip instead of chocolate as I thought the chocolate Cool Whip would be too much for my family. They all really liked it and it was so simple to make. Thanks SQ...

This is probably one of the simplest pies I've ever made! If you use a prepared graham cracker crust pie, it will take even less time (though I do prefer a homemade crust). Mine set up fine after about 4 hours of chilling. This filling tastes a lot like chocolate pudding. With the cherries mixed in, it tastes wonderful. Two of my favorite ingredients.

I made this and my family loved it. I did alter the recipe a bit since I was in a time crunch and had noticed from the other reviews that it might not set up as firm as I would like. So I adjusted the chocolate chips to 1 and 1/4 cups. The sweetened condensed milk i went 2 tablespoons shy of using the whole 14 ounces. It set up beautifully! One of my daughters asured me that it was a keeper! Thank you SusieQusie!

I made this for my dad on his birthday as he is a big cherry fan (a fondness I inherited!). It was wonderful. It didn't get firm enough to slice well, but that really didn't matter because it was so delicious, it was gone in a matter of minutes.

Wonderful! This was great. Mine didn't set up like I wished it would have but that didn't stop us from eating it. It has the perfect blend of chocolate and cherry. There isn't too much of one or the other. My fiance loves cherries and he loves chocolate but he doesn't eat chocolate covered cherries because of the "goosh" that is around the cherry inside. Now he can experience the flavour sensation! I will be putting this snazzy, quick fix on my permanent list. Thanks Susie!
