Mother's pecan pie for chocolate lovers! We always had this during the holidays and other special occasions when pecans were in season in the South. Very rich, so cut small pieces! This freezes well and makes nice holiday gifts!

Very rich and delicious. I made it in a chocolate cookie crumb pie crust which complemented it nicely.

Pie was okay, too dark chocolatey for me, thanks for the recipe anyway.
