Easy Chocolate Pecan Pie Recipe
Pecan pie is actually one of my favorites, but I’m the only one in my family who likes it, so I only eat it on Thanksgiving with my extended family. This Chocolate Pecan Pie is a different story. Everyone devoured it except for the self-proclaimed pecan-hater in the family!
This pie is very similar to a chocolate chip pie, but you melt the chocolate to give it a fudge texture. It’s very rich and delicious! Honestly, it’s more chocolatey than pecans. If you like pecans, I would add one cup more than the recipe calls for. If I don’t think my family will complain, I’d love to try it.
When it came out of the oven, this pie was gooey and gooey. It sets while it cools. It takes a few hours to fully set up, so you can put it in the refrigerator to speed things up. I keep leftovers in the fridge and find that I really like it cold! Of course, it’s also great at room temperature, or served warm with vanilla ice cream. It’s rich, so cut into small pieces.

Tips + Storage Information
- It is entirely possible to do this cocoa powder instead of chocolate chips. The only thing that would change would be the possible addition of corn syrup. Corn syrup is almost the same consistency as melted chocolate. I recommend ⅔ cup dark corn syrup and 1/4 cup cocoa powder.
- if The top or crust of the pie is getting too brown While baking, you can wrap the pie in foil.
- Pecan Pie Really It’s hard to say when it’s done! Take a thermometer, stick it on the center of the pie, and if it reads 200 degrees Fahrenheit, then it’s done!
- to get best filling texture You need to use room temperature ingredients (especially eggs) and make sure everything is well mixed. You don’t want any raw sugar pockets in your filling!
