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 made this recipe today. Made the crust from scratch and baked it a little bit longer because I live in high altitude. It came out fabulous, just like Cracker Barrel’s!! Thank you thank you thank you!!!

    This is my “go to” pecan pie recipe every year. It’s a hit every time I prepare it. I found it about three years ago when I found myself salivating for it every year and had to wait for Crackerbarrel to start selling them. I searched for the copycat version and there you were! Thanks for your creativity and most of all for sharing.
