The Art of Crafting Irresistible Dessert Empanadas

What are dessert empanadas? Only one of the best and most delicious ways to snack or to end a great meal! Across the globe and throughout history, laborers set off for work with last night’s leftovers repurposed into that day’s lunch. The lunch break had not yet been invented, nor, come to think of it, were forks, spoons, and knives. So by encasing the savory meats, vegetables, and gravy in pastry then baking it transformed scraps into a hearty, satisfying meal. Today at Chiddy’s Cheesesteaks, we honor the great tradition of the meat pie, with our savory Beef and Cheddar, Buffalo Chicken, Stromboli, and the ever popular Cheesesteak Empanada.

But what if you could end a fine repast with a sweet version of everyone’s favorite portable lunch pie? That’s right! Come to Chiddy’s and enjoy our banana Nutella empanada, peanut butter empanada, or the fan favorite, Chiddy’s justly famous fried apple empanadas! Here’s why! 

Indulge in Decadence: The Scrumptious Peanut Buttercup Empanada at Chiddy's

Chiddy’s knows that the best desserts are rich, melty, and thoroughly indulgent tasting. After all, a guilty pleasure must be something to look forward to!  Feast your eyes and your palate on our Banana Nutella Empanada. Close your eyes and bite into its crusty, fried shell that is dusted with powdered sugar. You’ll be dreaming about the rich filling of creamy banana slices enrobed in everyone’s favorite hazelnut and chocolate spread. There’s nothing else like it! What about Chiddy’s Peanut Buttercup Empanada? Chocolate and peanut butter are a marriage made in Chiddy’s kitchens, then encased in our empanada dough and fried until golden. But wait! Next, we roll each one in powdered sugar and chocolate syrup. One bite, and you’ll agree, our peanut butter empanadas are sheer heaven! 

Discover Fried Gold With Our Fried Apple Empanadas

Everyone loves apple pie but do not mistake Chiddy’s Apple Pie Empanadas for that Thanksgiving favorite.
