Recipe: Espresso Chocolate Pecan Pie

Written by

Here’s my Thanksgiving present to you, my favorite recipe for Pecan Pie. I always found traditional Pecan Pie way too sweet, so over the years I tinkered until I discovered that adding bittersweet chocolate, cocoa nibs and a special espresso extract brings the sweetness into balance. You get the same hit of gooey pecan goodness, but the espresso and chocolate deepen the flavor. Both cocoa nibs and Trablit coffee extract can be found at Surfas. Once you find the Trablit it will change your dessert making.
