If you like pecan pie, chances are you will love chocolate pecan pie! I know I do and I’m not really a huge pecan pie fan. My husband on the other hand loves pecan pie in any form and he really enjoyed this chocolate version.
(Oh and correction in the video, I broke my hubby’s ipod not his iphone. Good Lord he’d stroke out if I did that. I never told him I broke it though, I’m going to replace it since his birthday is next week. If you read this honey I’m sorry, but you shouldn’t be reading this because you said you would stop stalking my blog so if you are reading this that means you lied. I got my eye on you!)
The texture is a bit “fudgier” than regular pecan pie. Since pecan pie has that slight caramel taste the chocolate goes soooo well with it. Oh and you HAVE to use this butter pie crust recipe because it’s just makes it taste so divine!

As I posted on my facebook fanpage, I had two slices in 1 hour. I was so ashamed. I don’t even want to know how many calories I consumed. I just couldn’t stop y’all. I’ve noticed I’ve been saying this a lot. Perhaps I should seek some kind of treatment.
