Ok I have a love hate relationship with mince pies and I know I’m not alone! There was only ever one mince pie I liked and I’m pretty sure it was because I was ravenous. I have made so many mince pie recipes on the blog and you will see they all feature a little added crunch and nutty love to help me like them. I wanted to re-make these traditional staples into a winner all around for everyone …. welcome chocolate! I love chocolate cups and this nutty mince meat filling is unreal both in the cups and alone. I dare you to try these on a non mince pie lover, I have converted 4 people so far. I think they would be a fantastic treat to make for friends calling over during the Christmas period or even on the day itself as they can be made in advance and last ages, the perfect non stress treat!
