Just when we thought we’d seen everything you could possibly make with a Kmart Pie Maker, along comes - wait for it! - the Chocolate Pie.
That’s right, while thousands around the country have been whipping up savoury pies, muffins, quiches and even scones in the trust $29 appliance, the clever home cooks at the Kmart Pie Maker Recipes, Tips and Ideas Australia Facebook group have blown all of that out of the water with this killer new dessert pie.
Stuffed with Nutella, chocolate sauce, chocolate melts and crushed biscuits - YUM! - the chocolate pie is literally heaven-sent for anyone with a sweet tooth.
The Kmart Pie Maker experts in the group have also trialled a new technique for the pics, which involves using two whole slices of pastry and with no cutting required.
They simply smooth out all the ingredients on top of one entire sheet of frozen puff pastry which has been thawed, then top it with another slice of puff pastry and place the whole lot in the pie maker.
Once cooked, the whole sheet it then cut into fours - with extra crunchy, chocolate-y bits on the side. YUMMMM! And the best part? There’s zero pastry waste - meaning it’s a very economical technique!
The pies have been a hit with fellow followers at the Kmart Pie Maker Recipes, Tips and Ideas Australia Facebook group.
‘OMG they sound so easy, off to the shops I go tomorrow,’ says one fan. Wrote another: ‘Omg chocolate pie! Shut up!!!! I’m not trying this!! I’m not trying this!!!! I’m not trying this!!’
Added one more: The edges are the best bit anyway. My kids would be in heaven with these!’ And said another: ‘I’ve gained weight just looking at these!’
