Chocolate Pecan Pie – a family favorite for generations.
This deliciously fudgy, rich, sweet and nutty pie is my most requested holiday pie. In fact, this is the only pie our daughter will eat. She says she doesn’t like pie. Go figure! Yup, not buying that one! Even if you’re not a pie lover, like our daughter, or have never made a homemade pie, I bet this is one you’ll love and can make yourself. The filling comes together in just a few minutes. Stir and pour and you’re ready to bake!
Is chocolate pecan pie hard to make?
Allow the unbaked pie to rest a few minutes before baking.
The pie will puff up while baking, but settles back down while cooling.

Can you freeze chocolate pecan pie?
