Chocolate Caramel Pecan Pie

Chocolate Caramel Pecan Pie from www.SeasonedSprinkles.com

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.

Guess what I choose.

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 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?
