Chocolate Pecan Pie Recipe

This Pecan Pie has the perfect blend of pecans & chocolate pieces, an incredibly delicious sticky filling and a wonderfully crisp crust. This recipe creates one of the easiest and tastiest pecan pies!

I discovered this recipe by Chef John of food wishes a while back. It has been a pecan pie recipe that I have made multiple times and keep coming back to, because it really is delicious and quite simple to make. I don’t believe I ever ate this warm but I can certainly say this is VERY good cold. The top layer of this pie reminds me of a crisp brownie crust and the creamy filling kind of resembles a semi-sticky caramel-like texture. This is one pie of yumminess and a definite must make if you like chocolate and nuts!
