Your friends will love the sweet surprise of finding a chocolate pecan pie under their Christmas tree. I enjoy giving this unique gift mix because it's a little bit different from traditional holiday fare.
"You’ll have no hassle, no fuss and no leftovers with this dessert," Sue Shank promises from Harrisonburg, Virginia. "It looks impressive, but it’s actually so simple. It can be prepared in a 9- or 11-inch pan and tastes wonderful served warm with ice cream or whipped topping."
Using fat-free cream cheese, reduced-fat peanut butter, skim milk and fat-free frozen whipped topping, they trimmed down the fat in this fabulous pie. It is every bit as mouthwatering as the original version.—Taste of Home Test Kitchen, Greendale, Wisconsin
"MOM IS KNOWN far and wide for her generosity and hospitality, and I think this pie has become her trademark! Through the years, she's probably made thousands of these pies for family and friends. The combination of peanut butter, cream cheese and chocolate in a delicious tender pie crust is a delightful finale to any meal."
Trish Quinn of Cheyenne, Wyoming brings a fireside favorite indoors with the tast-tempting treats she fixes for movie and game nights. Kids of all ages will gobble up the individual graham cracker tarts filled with a fudgy brownie and golden marshmallows before asking, "Can I have s'more?"
