I’ve never been a big fan of pecan pie. Mainly because I’m really not a fan of nuts. I’m allergic to walnuts, so I have that excuse, but not much of an excuse for other nuts…I just don’t really lik’em. I went on a quest to find a pecan pie that not only would my family enjoy, but I could enjoy, too. Which means adding chocolate. And booze.
After some Google searching for recipes, I decided to try Paula Deen’s Chocolate Pecan Pie recipe. You can always count on Mrs. P. Deen to come up with something sinfully decadent to make during the holidays.
I took this picture when the pie was fresh out of the oven, but after cooling for a couple hours, it looks surprisingly like the picture of Paul’s pie! The taste was pretty awesome…you got a kick of that bourbon taste and loads of chocolate within each bite. I was thoroughly impressed and finally found a pecan pie I can make from the holidays and enjoy alongside my fam’!
