Chocolate Pecan Pie Recipe

Come Party With Me: Kentucky Derby — Dessert

There's only one dessert to serve at a Kentucky Derby viewing party, and that's pie. The original recipe for the authentic pie is a close guarded secret , but a quick Internet search proves that there are tons of chocolate-nut pie variations out there. This one is similar to a classic pecan pie, but with a rich brown sugar bourbon filling and chocolate chips. It needs time to bake and set and can be enjoyed warm or at room temperature. If you have time, I would make the pie on Friday night. For the delicious recipe, keep reading.
