Good afternoon Serious Eats!
My wife Barbara and I love Chocolate Pecan Pie!
We have changed the recipe for this contest and think we have created a winner of a PI / Pie.
We decided to melt the dark chocolate chips, then add the melted chocolate to the sugar mixture.
This created a rich creamy decadent chocolate caramel flavor.
My wife and I taste tested the pie last night and agree that the pies wonderful flavor will melt in your mouth and leave
you asking for another piece.
Hopefully all who try this recipe will think it is as wonderful as we do.
