New Chocolate Recipes every day this week!
A southern home cooking restaurant that I used to be a manager for served a delicious chocolate pie that would sell out every day. I have searched far and wide for a similar recipe for years and finally found it!
I have added pecans for a scrumptious Pecan Chocolate Pie which will be gracing our dessert table this Thanksgiving!
We are surrounded by Pecan orchards near our home. Pecans are one of the main crops of the state of Georgia so we have the joy of fresh home grown pecans available at our local farmers markets and even the orchard farm stores. We always add pecans to our fall desserts.
Last year my hubby created this delicious Sweet & Salty Chocolate Caramel Nut Clusters recipe for the holidays. Chocolate and nuts were meant to be together!
Our Chocolate Pecan Pie is an easy dessert to prepare with only six ingredients and all hand mixing. I made two pies and froze the second one. We thawed it at room temperature and it tasted like it had just come from the oven.
Desserts which freeze well are great to have on your Thanksgiving dessert table so you can bake a few days ahead to save time. That is exactly what I will be doing with this recipe!
