This fudgy pie is the perfect showcase for crunchy pecans. It's a special chocolaty twist on traditional pecan pie. It slices beautifully, and one slice goes a long way. Top it with whipped cream and you won't wait long for compliments! -Jacquelyn Smith, Soperton, Georgia

"This pie is great and easy - the perfect combination! It IS mighty rich, but my children love it! I add slightly sweetened whipped cream."

"I made this pie two years ago and my family loved the chocolaty taste. I did add 1/4 cup baking cocoa and flour, (I do not like rich Pies) this was not to rich at all. I still give it 5 stars."

"Although 2 of my kids like this, the only reason I won't make this again is because I would rather make a pecan pie that is more traditional. It was good, but a little too chocolaty for me. It really stuck on the fork."
