There’s pie. And then there’s pie. By that I mean there’s your basic everyday pie, and then there’s junked up but oh so delicious pie. This chocolate caramel pecan pie is an example of pie.

I was going to make a really trashed up pumpkin pie, but I took pity on my pumpkin tolerating husband. Like he told you all, he was happy to have a break from pumpkin when we made the Cranberry Orange Chicken. He’s just not a pumpkin lover, and I am. I have forced it down his throat since the end of August when I made no churn pumpkin ice cream with caramel swirl.

It continued with Pumpkin Penne with Peas, Parmesan, and Sage. The obsession reached new levels with Chipotle Pumpkin Cheese Dip. Plus I’ve already made an Italian Style Pumpkin Cheesecake.

Enough is enough I suppose. Plus, he loves chocolate the way I love pumpkin. So it was time.

One of his favorite desserts is the chocolate pecan pie from Cracker Barrel. Have you tried it? It’s so good. Like a pecan chocolate chip cookie. It definitely falls into the pie category of things.

And so does this chocolate caramel pecan pie. Instead of using traditional ingredients like molasses or corn syrup in this pie, I used caramel. The caramel adds this gooey, decadent candy bar flavor to this pie. And then, we topped it off with chocolate chips. Because, one simply can’t have too many chocolate chips.

Ask the Goose. She knows. When I break out the chocolate chips to bake with, she stands at my feet, tugs on my pants, and says, “Mamamamamama! Some! Peas!” (Peas is toddler speak for please.)

My choices: either don’t give her a little bowl of chocolate chips and have to pick her up so that she can try to stealthily steal chocolate chips off the counter while I finish, or save my back and sanity and give her some.

Thankfully this chocolate caramel pecan pie is easy as, well, pie to make making it perfect for Thanksgiving or Christmas. I totally take a short cut and use premade pie crust. If you want to make your own, go for it. At one point, I would have been all about that, but well, now with a toddler hanging off my leg while I bake, ease is important. And this easy. 10 minutes of prep, less than an hour in the oven, and bam.

    Wow, you’re not kidding when you said you love pumpkin lol! I think I prefer this pie, not being a big pumpkin fan myself. And 10 minutes of prep? Count me in! Looks delicious.

      Oh no, I never kid about pumpkin. Except right now 😉 Yep, 10 minutes to get this bad boy in the oven, and I had a toddler stealing chocolate chips and wanting uppies. So you could probably get it in even faster.

    What a great twist on traditional pecan pie. This looks so good. I’ll have to try making it- it’s one type of pie I’ve never made. Thanks for the recipe

    This sounds like an amazing combination. I have so many family members who would love this pie. I just might have to add this to my Thanksgiving menu.

    So… you had me at chocolate. I have the BIGGEST soft spot for chocolate ever. I hate candy, I only eat chocolate as my “sweet”. I’m always on the hunt for new recipes with new ingredients that feature chocolate, and you just hit the nail on the head! This is an awesome post, thanks so much for sharing.

    Talk about food porn! That pie looks AMAZING, and I am the hugest fan of chocolate chip pecan pie. I’m sure the caramel sends it to another level, too. YUM.

    Um, yes please. This looks amazing. I first came across chocolate pecan pie when we lived in Texas and I remember thinking how much better it was than regular pecan pie, why would anyone make regular pecan pie?!

    Wow this reminds me of my Death by Autumn pie which I posted recently. Once a year (month? week?) whether you need it or not right?
