Traditional Pecan Pie is one of my favorite Thanksgiving pies, to be sure. I love the textural combination of crunchy pecans and sweet sticky filling. I love the rich flavor and the flaky crust. Yum. This Chocolate Pecan Pie I’ve brought to share with you today has all of the qualities I love in Pecan Pie, with the addition of chocolate.
Seriously. I was a little worried the chocolate might detract from the basic quality and tastiness of the pie, but oh no. Chocolate came through with flying colors and bumped this pie right up to a level of divine deliciousness I hadn’t expected. She’s a keeper this one, friends. Hope some of you get a chance to try it! ‘Tis the season for pie, after all (and comfy stretch pants, thank goodness).
