Chocolate Pecan Pie

This Chocolate Pecan Pie is a rich chocolaty nutty dessert perfect for fall days and holiday season. Flaky buttery pie crust filled with crunchy pecans and chocolate filling.. by far one of the best combinations ever.

The pie is made with no corn syrup and uses dark brown sugar instead which brings an amazing molasses caramel flavor. The chocolate balances the sweetness of the filling while the pecans bring an amazing crunchy texture. You can serve the pie with some fresh whipped cream or ice cream on top for a more decadent treat. Enjoy!
