Chocolate Bourbon Pecan Pie

I have never been a pecan pie fan. No one makes it at my house and come to think of it, I don't know anyone that makes it period. I have always considered it a southern thing that people just don't do well in the Northwest. Although, a couple of years ago I was at a lunch catered by Lisa Dupar (a caterer in Seattle, well known for her amazing food) and part of the dessert spread included these mini chocolate pecan pies. I know, not a TRUE pecan pie, but you have to start somewhere. Anyway, these little pies were just about the most amazing thing I've ever had and to this day I haven't forgotten about how yummy they were.

Flash forward to this weekend, when my sister announced she was going to make a pecan pie for Thanksgiving. Groan........gross. BUT then I remembered the delicious chocolate one I had a while back and the search was on for a similar recipe. I was looking all over the place and found some that looked similar, so I was content in my findings. Just when I was about to give up on google I tried again and found the EXACT recipe! I cannot explain the excitement that ensued! Because this is so delicious, I must share with everyone. The center is full of gooey, chocolaty deliciousness and would be a fantastic addition to your Thanksgiving feast! Find the recipe here for Lisa Dupar's Chocolate Bourbon Pecan Pie.

  1. Mmmmmmm... so good!
    And I am not a fan of pecan pie either. Might just have to try that!

  2. I love pecan pie and then add choco to it! YUMY!

    Thanks for postin!

  3. I have never tried Pecan pie; I don't even think I've ever seen one! And while this does sound a tad bit appealing, I don't know if I am brave enough to try it.....

  4. I'm not a pecan pie fan either, but I bet I would like it with chocolate!

  5. This kind of makes me hungry! Not a pecan pie fan though (which is weird...why does it make me hungry?!), oh and the chocolate wouldn't help either. :( But, if someone made a pie like this I would definitely try some!

  6. I'm a pecan pie fan, so adding chocolate would make it that much better!!
