It All About the Pie

I want to share another one of my favorite Thanksgiving recipes. I just found this mini chocolate pecan pie recipe last year, and it s really super delicious. I made a slight modification and didn’t make my own pie crust. I bought these little mini graham cracker crusts that you can find in the baking aisle. This cuts down on the prep time a little which is always helpful when it comes to Thanksgiving. Plus I am not really a huge fan of regular pie crust, so its a win win.


  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup light-brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup mini semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2/3 cup chopped pecans

What to do:

  1. Mix brown sugar, chocolate chips, egg, melted butter, vanilla and salt in bowl
  2. Divide half the pecans up among the mini-pie crusts
  3. Top with the brown sugar/chocolate mixture
  4. Add the rest of the pecans.
  5. Bake for 20 minutes at 325°F

There you have it! A super simple and beyond delicious chocolate pecan pie recipe. Do yourself a favor and try making these this Thanksgiving!
