Easy Chocolate Pecan Pie Recipe
Pecan pie is actually one of my favorites, but I’m the only one in my family that likes it, so I only have it for Thanksgiving when we are with my extended family. This chocolate pecan pie was a different story. Everyone but the self proclaimed pecan hater in the family gobbled it right up!
This pie is very similar to chocolate chip pie, but you melt the chocolate to give it the fudgy texture. It is sinfully rich and delicious! In all honesty it is more chocolate than pecan. If you love pecans, I would add more than the one cup the recipe calls for. I’d love to try that if I didn’t think my family would complain.
How to Make Chocolate Pecan Pie
Making chocolate pecan pie is so easy! It can be even easier if you decide to make this pie with a store-bought pie crust. I like to make a homemade crust because they can’t be beat, but I’m also all about simplifying when needed. Just follow these easy steps to make this decadent chocolate pecan pie…
- You start by spreading some chopped pecans in the bottom of an unbaked pie shell.
- Next up you just pour the chocolate filling over the pecans.
- To make it look pretty, use a few extra whole pecans to garnish the edge of the pie. Then just pop it in the oven!
When it comes out of the oven, this pie is ooey and gooey. It sets up as it cools. It takes several hours for it to set up completely, so you can pop it in the refrigerator to speed things up a little. I stored the leftovers in the fridge, and discovered that I really liked it cold!
Of course, it is also fantastic at room temperature or served warm with vanilla ice cream. It is quite rich, so cut small slices.
