Chocolate Pecan Pie. Oh my. Rich, fudgy chocolatey bottom, with that toasted brown sugar pecan flavor we all know and love, all in a flaky pie crust! This chocolate pecan pie is like a brownie pecan pie. It has become a staple in my house for thanksgiving, well, and year-round! It’s so easy to make and I really cannot get enough of it!
If you’re looking for a classic pecan pie recipe, look no further than our Brown Sugar Pecan Pie, it is too die for! I think I’m starting to say that too much.
Making this Chocolate Pecan Pie
The Pie Crust
Making this pie is super simple, start by taking your pie crust—you can use a store bought one (we’re not judging) or feel free to try our favorite homemade pie crust recipe —and rolling it out and placing it in your pie dish. Take a fork and prick the pie crust all over so it doesn’t bubble too much.
Making the filling
In a microwave safe bowl you’ll melt your chocolate and butter together until smooth. Then you’ll mix in your eggs and corn syrup. Next add in your brown sugar, flour, salt, and vanilla. Finally add fold in your pecan halves!
Bake it at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 10 minutes. Reduce your heat to 325 degrees and bake for an additional 35-40 minutes! If you see that your crust is starting to get a little too brown, pull your pie out and cover it with aluminum foil and then return it to the oven.
Can I make this chocolate pecan pie gluten-free?
Yes! Making this pie gluten-free is super easy. These days gluten free pie crust are everywhere! But if you want to make a homemade gluten free crust, try this one out from my friend over at Fearless Dining.This recipe hardly has any flour in it to start so it’s super easy to swap the two tablespoons of flour for a gluten free 1:1 flour!
How to serve this chocolate pecan pie
I prefer this pie after it’s cooled it room temperature. And this pie is AMAZING with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and some freshly whipped cream!
