My mom used to make this chocolate chip pie when I was growing up but I haven’t had it for years. I actually forgot about it, but found the recipe tucked away in an old worn cookbook and decided to take a trip down memory lane. I’m so glad I did. It was just as good as I remember! My mom used walnuts, but it is even better with pecans!
I like pecan pie, but this one is perfect when you need a little chocolate! I love the contrast of the crisp top, the soft chocolate middle, and the crunch of the nuts. Oh so yummy! If you serve it warm from the oven, it is great with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
If are a chocolate lover, and you like pecan pie, you should give chocolate chip pecan pie a try. It is amazing!
