Rodelle was kind enough to send me some of their delicious goodies. As always, all opinions are mine.
A delicious chocolate pecan pie with a fudgy chocolaty filling that will leave your taste buds craving for more.
If you are someone who enjoys pecan pie as well as chocolate, and if you have never combined this love of yours, you need to make this recipe asap.
The best part about this Double Chocolate Pecan Pie is that this is a one-pot recipe and does not require any special kitchen tools. If you have a medium sized bowl and a whisk, you are all set to go. And if the thought of baking a pie scares you, this is just the right recipe for you.
For my chocolate pecan pie, I used semi-sweet chocolate chips as well as Cocoa powder – because hey – one can never have enough chocolate right?
I used Rodelle Gourmet Baking Cocoa Powder as well as Rodelle Pure Vanilla Extract which has given this Pecan Pie a rich and decadent taste. I think choosing quality ingredients, especially when it comes to baking is very crucial to get the right results and thanks to Rodelle, my Chocolate Pecan Pie turned out rich and delicious.
I have made this pie several times – with whole pecans on top as well as with chopped pecans on top. While whole pecans definitely look prettier, I have noticed that not everyone might enjoy full pecans in their mouth while eating, especially kids.
Also, there’s no corn syrup in this recipe so it’s perfect for those who are looking to making their pecan without any corn syrup.
