Ohhhh Chocolate Pecan Pie… I hate to admit I only fully began to appreciate pecan pie just a couple years ago, but then I fell in love! If you love pecan pie the only thing that makes it better is chocolate! We had this for Thanksgiving and everyone loved it. The recipe is very simple and totally fool-proof so be sure to bookmark this one for next year or even make it for Christmas or New Year’s Eve! (Or, really anytime, trust me!)
How to make Chocolate Pecan Pie
This year when I was making pies I used the pre-made crust that you can find in the cold section at the grocery store. I love the Pillsbury one and it’s super easy to work with! To start you are going to unroll the pie crust into your pie plate. It will be easiest to unroll if you let it sit out of the refrigerator for 5-10 minutes first. I had a little extra crust that hung over my dish so I folded it over and used a fork to press them together and add a little decoration. You can add any touch that you prefer at this point.
Next, pour your chocolate chips and pecans onto the pie crust. Then, combine the remaining ingredients in a mixing bowl and stir well. Pour on top of chocolate chips and pecans.
Last, put the pie in the oven and let it cook for 45-60 minutes at 350 degrees. The pie is done when the crust is golden brown and it is ALMOST set it the middle — there should still be a little jiggle.
Let cool and enjoy! Store the pie at room temperature for a couple days (if there are any leftovers).
