Reviews for Mayan Chocolate Pecan Pie
"The pie was good, a little too sweet for my taste. I plan to make it again, but will add less sugar and corn syrup and ramp up the coffee flavor."
"My family loves this pie!"
"Honestly-I haven't made this yet but I am this week! The reviews made me excited to try it. I want to have this before the world ends!"
"I added 2Tbs of coco powder as recommended, but it was still way too sweet for my family. It set up nicely. but it just did not taste good at all."
"The pie had excellent flavor, however, I had a real problem with the filling not setting up. I have been making pecan pies for 20 years and never had a problem."
"Followed the recipe exactly and didn't care for it at all. Tasted like eating big bites of corn syrup. Really poor."
"its a different taste but, a good one"
"I added coco powder to the filling (about 2-3 Tbsps?), substituted ground cinnamon for the pepper, and used store-bought graham cracker crusts. I also wasn't sure how deep a "deep-dish crust" was, so I got two standard-depth 9" pre-made crusts from the store, put 1/2 cup each of chocolate chips and chopped pecans in each crust, increased the measurements for the filling ingredients by about 1/3, split the resulting filling liquid evenly between the two pies, and that filled them just about perfectly."
