    Gotta Love Chocolate Pecan Pie!

    Cynthia Allgood from Rocky Face, GA

    I first became aware of this pie in my Home Ec Class in high school, about 12 years ago. I have made this pie many times, and it is always a hit! For those of you who haven't made it before, it's a sure fire crowd-pleaser!

    Perfect Pie When You Need One

    Teri Bush from SAINT ALBANS, WV

    I have made this pie more times than I can count, including my son Ben's going away Thanksgiving dinner before he left for Air Force Basic Training this year. It never fails to perform perfectly, looks beautiful, and has the perfect combination of chocolate/pecans. If you haven't tried it, you won't be disappointed!!

    Lower Calorie and Still Great!

    Marty Heintz from Opelousas, LA

    I substituted low-calorie sweetner and even used the new low-sugar corn syrup, along with an egg substitute, and the results were still great. Instead of over 500 calories a slice, it now comes out to about 300 -- much more manageable to anyone who wants a special splurge but still concerned about calories and fat. One thing I did not cut were the real Nestle chunks!

    The best pecan pie ever

    Judy Walters from Sapulpa, OK

    This is very easy to make & my family loved it! The filling doesn't separate after it sits for awhile like the one I have been making. This will be the pecan pie I make from now on.

    I made this three years ago for Thanksgiving, now I'm not allowed to go to my mom's house unless I bring it. LOL!!! A definite hit and now a Thanksgiving dinner tradition. Easy and delicious.

    Sarah Groveau from GLENDALE HEIGHTS, IL

    Wow, this pie was soo good. Turned out great and everyone loved it. The recipe is soo easy yet no one knows that. Will be making this one again soon. I used the rolls of pie crust that you thaw and unroll, not sure if that is what the recipe calls for but it worked great!!!

    The disappearing pie!

    Y Lewis from HOUSTON, TX

    I don't like pecan pie but my husband and coworkers do so I made this pie last night and took it to work this morning. My husband got his piece first. Everyone who tried it wanted more. My husband asked me to make another one just for him so I have another one in the oven now. the only change I made was I used a homemade pastry dough for the crust and not a premade shell.

    Nicole Adams from Benbrook, TX

    When I was making this I forgot to melt the butter b4 adding it so I got a pan and warmed up some water and put my mixing bowl in that to melt the butter but not cook the eggs. I turned out great!

    Melissa Patterson from BAYTOWN, TX

    I have never really liked Pecan Pie until I tried this recipe the other day. I will use this one time and time again. I will surely share it with my family. This one is so easy to make. I loved it.

    new favorite recipe

    Meghan Cass from Alexandria, OH

    This is the best recipe for chocolate pecan pie I've had. It came out much more solid than previous recipes I've made and it was much easier to mix everything together rather than try to place the pecans on top one at a time.

    Alexis Amsden from Oak creek, WI

    It surprised me that this pie wasn't too sweet. It was just right. I'll definitely be using it again, and of course sharing it!

    Chocolate Chunk Pecan Pie

    Christy Jackson from DALTON, GA

    I tried this recipe but used chocolate chips instead of chunks because it's what I already had. I also layered my chocolate chips on the pie crust bottom instead of mixing them up in my pie batter. My family LOVED it!! It was like having pecan pie with a layer of chocolate all in one. Delicious!

    Perfect ending to our dinner party!

    Patricia Lewis from Fullerton, CA

    I made the Chocolate Chunk Pecan Pie yesterday for our party. It was a hit! Everyone thought they were getting regular pecan pie until they discovered the delicious chocolate chunks!! A very pleasant surprise. I made my own pastry and I did not feel that it needed the deep dish that the recipe called for.

    A Holiday Must

    Marilyn Jess from North Bennington, VT

    I don't like pecan pie but after making this several years ago for my husband's December birthday I now look forward to it. Use real butter, good vanilla extract and cover the crust with foil. Even prepared refrigerated crust works well. No leftovers!

    chocolate chunk pecan pie

    Elizabeth Whitehouse from FOLSOM, PA

    This pie was worth the time and money invested. Both the chocolate and the pecans made it very lucious and a treat to look at. My husband said it was the best he had ever tasted and he should know since he is addicted to pecan pie.

  •  Star(s)

    Too much chocolate

    Susan Campbell from GRASS LAKE, MI

    Next time, I will make this pie with only half the chocolate morsels, as it was too much for the limited amount of filling. The taste was a little bland, as well.

    Husband's new favorite!

    Janelle Wright from WEST PLAINS, MO

    This pie is excellent. My husband's absolute favorite dessert is pecan pie. I make this, and it is now his favorite! I don't care for pecan pie, but this pie is wonderful-just like eating chocolate pecan candy. It was easy to make, too!

    Best Pecan Pie Ever!

    susan michael from GLENDALE, CA

    Very easy to make and is always a crowd pleaser! It is perfect everytime I make it and everyone loves it. Just make sure to put foil on the crust edges before baking so they don't burn or get too brown.

    for chocolate lovers

    Pamela Hallissey from Attleboro, MA

    I made this for my mother in law's bday since she loves pecan pie. Everyone agreed the taste was good, but it tasted more like a chocolate chip cookie in a pie shell than a pecan pie. I would half the chocolate next time to get the pecan pie taste of the dessert.

    Pecan and Chocolate, mmmm!!!

    That is the reaction I get from my family every time I make this recipe because we are all crazy for pecan pie and chocolate. Having them both together is a double pleasure.

    Loved by the open-minded!

    Amanda Ponsot from FORT WAYNE, IN

    I baked this chocolate pecan pie for Thanksgiving this year and half of the people loved it and half of the people preferred the original pecan pie. I realized that the relatives that liked it the chocolate better were the ones who loved rich desserts. The other half preferred more of the original caramel flavor and thought the chocolate with the pecans took away from the caramel flavor. When I make this dish again, I don't think I will call it pecan pie because people in my family generally have a set idea of what pecan pie is so when I add something different they don't know how to take it! All-in-all I loved it!

    Staple at Thanksgiving and Christmas!

    Tracy Curlin from BELLA VISTA, AR

    I cooked this one year to go with a plain pecan pie during the holidays. I has been requested ever since in replacement of a regular pecan pie. The chocolate and pecan is a magnificent flavor combo!
