Today is National Chocolate Pecan Pie Day, and we are here for it! This delicious dessert combines two of our favorite things: pecans and chocolate. But what exactly is a chocolate pecan pie? Keep reading to find out everything you need to know about this special treat.

What is a Chocolate Pecan Pie?

A chocolate pecan pie is a type of pie that contains chocolate and pecans in the filling. The filling is usually made with chocolate chips, chopped pecans, eggs, butter, sugar, corn syrup, and vanilla extract. The pie crust can be either store-bought or homemade, and it is typically made with all-purpose flour, sugar, salt, and butter.

Why is Chocolate Pecan Pie So Delicious?

This pie is so delicious because it is basically like eating a big ol’ bowl of chocolate chip cookie dough…but in pie form! The chocolate chips and chopped pecans give the pie a nice texture, while the corn syrup makes the filling super gooey and delicious. Plus, who doesn’t love a good homemade pie crust? It’s the perfect combination of sweet and savory flavors that will have you coming back for seconds…or thirds!

How Do I Make a Chocolate Pecan Pie?

If you’re feeling ambitious, you can whip up a homemade chocolate pecan pie from scratch. Start by preheating your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Then, in a large bowl, mix together the filling ingredients: 1 cup of chopped pecans, 1 cup of semisweet chocolate chips, 3 eggs, 1/2 cup of sugar, 1/2 cup of light corn syrup, 1/4 cup of melted butter, 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract. Pour the mixture into an unbaked 9-inch pie crust and bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour. Let the pie cool completely before serving so that the filling has time to set up. Yum!
