Why you should try this Cracker Barrel Chocolate Pecan Pie recipe
When people tell me homemade pie is difficult to make, I always tell them to start with a pecan pie. If you can measure, and stir, guess what, you can make a pecan pie.
If you like, you can start with a pre-made pie crust. I like the refrigerated ones you buy at the store, I think they taste better than the frozen ones. Frozen ones will work too, but I think the refrigerated ones taste a little better.
Here’s a list of what you need:
- Large eggs
- Corn syrup
- Vanilla extract
- Semi-sweet chocolate chips
- Unbaked pie shell

You don’t have to wait until the holidays to make this chocolate pecan pie, it’s good any time of the year. It’s great to take to potlucks because it does not have to be refrigerated.
What can you serve this pie with?
More pie I love to serve this pie to my chocolate lovers for the holidays along with a pumpkin pie, or even an old-fashioned American apple pie. I love to serve up large slices with a dollop of whipped cream when I serve this pie.
How long will this pie last? How do you store a pecan pie?
This pie will last for 2 to 3 days when left out at room temperature. I simply lightly cover the pie with plastic wrap or aluminum foil and leave this pie out on my countertop. You could freeze this pie if you double-wrap it with plastic wrap for up to 3 months.
