Pecan pie is actually very easy to make, but with a few special touches that are equally easy, you can take your regular pecan pie to the next level. This recipe for pecan pie adds two extra special ingredients that are near and dear to my heart – chocolate and bourbon.
Chocolate is always a good way to make something better (at least if you’re making it in my house), but the nice thing about this recipe is that you don’t have to do anything with it, other than pick a good quality dark chocolate and toss it in the pie dish along with the pecans. The same goes for the bourbon – pick your favorite bourbon and simply add it to the filling mixture that you’re already making. Of course, if you don’t want to add the bourbon, don’t. Just leave it out – there’s no need to replace it with anything.
