Fudgy Pecan Pie Recipe

This started out as just a plain chocolate pie that I "dressed up" for company. Now when I serve it, guests often tell me, "Your pie looks too good to eat - but I won't let that stop me!" -Ellen Arndt, Cologne, Minnesota

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 24, 2012

"I made this for the first time when I was a newlywed for my first Christmas as a married woman. It is now a Christmas tradition at my house (10 years later)! I love chocolate and this recipe delivers. If you are looking for something a little bit different than the traditional pecan pie or chocolate pecan pie, give this a try!"
