I made this pie (actually made two of them) for a Christmas party, entertained some friends with the leftovers the next day, and took the rest to the office, and it was a big hit with everyone!! Reading the other reviews , I made the following suggested modifications: used deep dish pie crust, the amount of filling turned out just right that way; cut down bourbon to 2 tbs and sugar to 3/4 cup; and laid down a single layer of chocolate chips at the bottom of the crust (did not measure, it was maybe 2 oz of chips) instead of mixing them in the filling. This was the first pecan pie I ever made, and I make desserts rarely, but this was easy to make and turned out wonderfully. If you want a nice pecan pie with a twist (that is not overpowering), try this one.

This pecan pie is overwhelmed by the bourbon and chocolate and has more of a custard consistency. Recipe almost makes enough filling for 2 pies if using a frozen 9" pie shell.

this is my recipe that I have been making for at least 15 years for Thanksgiving & Christmas...I have changed it slightly to make it the way we really love. 3/4c sugar instead of of 1c, 2 tbsp bourbon instead of 1/4c and 1/2c choc chips instead of 6 oz. Make it in a DEEP pie dish, as this makes a lot of filling!! Thanksgiving isn't Thanksgiving for me without this pie.

I am asked to make this for every holiday! I put the chocolate chips in the pie shell prior to adding the mixture so that they don't melt. Prior to this, they seemed to make one big chocolate glob - adding them first took care of this problem. I also use a little less bourbon so it doesn't overpower the other flavors.

This is a DECADENT pie! Like many other reviewers, I found it too chocolatey the first time I made it. To remedy it the second time: 1)I used less chocolate chips 2) melted them beforehand 3) poured the melted chips into a deep dish pie shell, and put the pie shell back in the freezer for an hour before I made the actual pie. It came out great with just a little layer of chocolate at the bottom! Also like many reviewers I used Kahlua instead of Bourbon. DELISH! Thanks for sharing this recipe!

I would push my grandma down the stairs to get to the last piece of this pie. DEELISH!

The pie was delicious. The only problem I ran into was that the recipie makes a lot of filling -- I used a frozen, ready-made 9" pie crust and it was enough for 2 pies!

Like Jay in Tennessee, I did push my Grandmother down the stairs for the last piece of this pie! Two good things came out of this. The pie was the best hit ever this holiday season, and Grandma's new hips are better than the original! She ended up thanking me!
