Reviews for Bourbon Chocolate Pecan Pie

Everyone raved about this pie! It was amazing.
This pie is excellent however it needs to be refrigerated prior to serving to"tighten up" the filling.
Are the bittersweet chocolate pieces like semi-sweet morsels or just come in a package of chocolate chunks?
I used 9" frozen pie crusts. It was a shallow pie rather than deep dish. Because of that filled 2 pie crusts. Came out great they are not as thick as the recipe. But thinner is less calories in each piece with the same great taste. This allowed me to bring one to a party and keep one at home.
This recipe just oozes the wonderful atmosphere of the southern USA. The pan was licked clean, literally. This is a definite keeper. As for the bourbon, I really wish I could have tasted it more, but also glad we couldn't because of my Mormon in laws.
