    Chocolate Pecan Pie Recipe

    Chocolate Pecan Pie Recipe

    I love pecans, and I love chocolate. My pecan pie is one of my absolute favorite pie recipes. Up until my first pregnancy, I was allergic to nuts. Once I discovered that my immune system had changed enough and I had outgrown my allergies, I began cooking with pecans galore! For Thanksgiving this year, I decided to modify my original pecan pie recipe into a chocolate pecan pie. If you love chocolate and pecans like me, you are sure to love my newest holiday recipe.
