This is a new recipe and my friend makes them and i tasted it and it is so good and tasty. It tastes like chocolate pop tarts.

Ingredients

filling:
2 c
sugar
6 Tbsp
unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 c
(1 stick) butter or margarine, melted
dough:
2 c
all purpose flour
1 tsp
salt
1/2 c
shortening
1/2 c
milk, plus more if needed
vegetable oil

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a medium bowl, stir together the sugar and cocoa powder. Add the melted butter and stir until the mixture forms a paste. Set aside while you prepare the dough.
2
In a medium bowl, combine the flour and salt. Cut up the shortening with a long-tined fork. Add the milk and stir until the dough sticks together. Divide into 10 portions. Roll each portion out on a floured surface into a 5-of-6-inch circle. Place 2 tablespoons of filling in each. Wet the edges and fold over, crimping with a fork. In a large skillet, pour the oil to a depth of 1/4-inch and heat over medium heat. Place the chocolate pies in the hot oil and fry until browned on both sides, turning as needed. Remove to a paper towel-lined plate. You can put to sprinkle powdered sugar on chocolate fried pies if you like.

Nellie, I am sorry I left one out how to fix the filling. My apologies. No, you don't cook on the stove. Just mix with it and make forms a paste. When you fry the pies and it will melt the sugar and it will get thickens. Thank to let me know. Have a nice night.

I'm sure you know but you rehydrate the apricots and add sugar so they will be sweet but still tart.
