How To Make Chocolate Pecan Pie

Have a classic pie you love but want to try something new? Just add chocolate! Well, maybe not all pies. Not sure how great a chocolate apple pie would taste. A chocolate pecan pie, on the other hand, now that’s a flavor combination we can get behind. The addition of cocoa to the classic caramel-y and nutty tart is the perfect compliment to round out the flavor. And since this dish is in no shortage of sugary sweetness, we recommend opting for a bittersweet version to add the perfect amount of piquancy.
