What makes the Cracker Barrel Chocolate Pecan Pie so delicious?

If you love pecan pie, and you are a chocolate lover, this is a must-make pie. This pie features semi-sweet chocolate chips so the chocolate adds just a touch of sweetness.

Why you should try this Cracker Barrel Chocolate Pecan Pie recipe

When people tell me homemade 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.

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.

What can you serve this pie with?

More pie 😉 I love to serve this pie to my chocolate lovers for the holidays along with a pumpkin pie, or even an old-fashioned American apple pie. I love to serve up large slices with a dollop of whipped cream when I serve this pie.

How long will this pie last? How do you store a pecan pie?

This pie will last for 2 to 3 days when left out at room temperature. I simply lightly cover the pie with plastic wrap or aluminum foil and leave this pie out on my countertop. You could freeze this pie if you double-wrap it with plastic wrap for up to 3 months.

    I made this pie it turned out great I lined the crust edges with tin foil so the edges didn’t get over done, I also wanted the pecans not so toasted so I teped tinfoil over the top as well

    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!!
