Try this recipe for double chocolate Pecan Pie / Tart for a sweet twist on a holiday favorite! Thank you to Diamond Nuts for sponsoring this recipe.
My grandma Sumner was the pie maker in our family. She showed up to every holiday with 2 of each flavor of pie… she had pumpkin and banana cream and chocolate cream and pecan and coconut cream. She always made sure that everyones special pie wishes were fulfilled. She was pretty special that way.
I’m not as nice as my grandma Sumner was! When one of my family members says “it’s not Thanksgiving without a Chocolate Pie” and another one says “we can’t celebrate properly without Pecan Pie on the table” I decide to get a little creative and make both wishes come true, in one pie. Meet Double Chocolate Pecan Pie, a new staple for your holiday meal!
This recipe for Chocolate Pecan Pie caught my eye in the New York Times a few weeks ago. I loved that it was such a creative twist on a classic recipe…and who doesn’t love more chocolate this time of year? I took things one step further though and created a chocolate pie crust to go right along with it! Now, those who requested a pecan pie and the others who requested chocolate can have their cake and eat it too. It’s the best of both worlds, don’t you think?
I hope you all enjoy this recipe for Double Chocolate Pecan Pie and that everyone is thankful at your table on Thanksgiving, whether you have umpteen million flavors of pie or not. Have a wonderful holiday!
