    1. Make Dusting Mixture: In a small bowl, thoroughly combine cocoa powder and flour. Set aside.

      Hyvee Culinary Expert Tip
      For an easy and delicious chocolate cherry pie, preheat oven to 375 degrees. Fill pie crust with 2 (21-oz. each) cans Hy-Vee cherry fruit filling. Bake for 15 minutes at 375 degrees, reduce oven heat to 350 degrees and bake for 50 to 60 minutes, or until filling is bubbling and crust is cooked through. Cool completely; chill at least 2 hours before serving.
