Cracker Barrel Chocolate Pecan Pie

Cracker Barrel Chocolate Pecan Pie is a must if you can catch it when it is available. This is a seasonal pie that is served during the holidays. I really don’t think you want to miss this delicious Cracker Barrel recipe, and especially so if you love pecan pie.

When people tell me pie is difficult to make, I always tell them to start with a pecan pie. If you can measure, and stir, guess what, you can make a pecan pie. I promise it is easy to do.

By using semi-sweet chocolate chips, a rich chocolate flavor adds just the right touch to this special pie. Cracker Barrel typically only serves this pie during the winter holidays, but now you can enjoy this pie any time of the year.

If you like, you can start with a pre-made pie crust. I like the refrigerated ones you buy at the store, I think they taste better than the frozen ones. Frozen ones will work too, but I think the refrigerated ones taste a little better.

    I followed the directions to a “T” and this pie did not set well. It was gooey and still in a liquid state in the middle after over an hour in the oven. I would revise the baking time for this recipe.
    I was very disappointed.

      I am really sorry this happened to you. Most everyone that has tried the pie has had great luck. My baking time is from 50 to 60 minutes. You can bake one of these up to two 75 minutes. So that means 1 hour and 15 minutes. The baking time allows for some differences in ovens, some ovens, I am sure it isn’t yours, can run a little hot, or a little cold. So again my apologies, for you having a bad experience.

    Have not made this recipe, but I am looking for a copy cat recipe for the cracker barrel butter pecan n chocolate cobbler. It was a seasonal/promotional item back in June 2014. I was an employee during that time and it was a dessert from heaven. This pregnant lady is craving it SO bad and there are no recipes online for me to follow 😭 it is shown on a post from Cracker Barrels Twitter page from June 3, 2014. Is there ANY way you could try to make this so that I can follow your recipe?? TIA!

    Was super easy to make! I made a homemade crust, and used 1 & 1/2 c. pecans. I cooked a full hour. Be sure to do the jiggle test, just a little jiggly in the middle and its done. Also you can use the temperature test, 200 degrees. Let sit out a full 2 hours before you eat! Then put in fridge. Was best pecan pie I’ve ever had!!
