Chocolate Pecan Pie

It’s not too late to start thinking about what pies to make for Thanksgiving. This Chocolate Pecan Pie may be something you want to add to your list!Chocolate Pecan Pie | thebittersideofsweet.com

I have memories of going to my mother’s house and there always being pecan pie on the counter top for Thanksgiving. My oldest sister is the one who makes it and brings it every year. For a long time I didn’t like pecan pie. I didn’t like the bitterness of the pecans. Well a few years back I decided to try the pie and I have not looked back since.Chocolate Pecan Pie | thebittersideofsweet.com

This year I asked my husband what kind of dessert he wanted for Thanksgiving. He said pie. I said pecan pie. He says oh yes! So I decided to make my own pie combining my sisters pie recipe with my own homemade crust recipe. I  made this way ahead of time and decided to freeze it till the day it is actually needed. On Saturday I pulled it out to cut a piece of it so I could snap some pictures and let me tell you the house started buzzing. Kids were all over the place looking, hoping for a small taste.Chocolate Pecan Pie | thebittersideofsweet.com

Since I had the piece already cut and ready to go I asked my husband if he wanted it. He said “well of course I do!” Then the kids started buzzing around him. Heads were popping over the back of the couch. It really was a funny site. In the end everyone got a taste and no one wants to wait for Thursday to have another. I’m thinking I need to head to the kitchen and slice another piece!! ENJOY!
