I reduced the sugar to 1 cup and added 1/2 cup coconut and it tasted really good. Excellent recipe! My neighbor's 2 year old son loved it. I am going to start serving this every year. Thanks! Read More

We made it for Thanksgiving and for a family of dessert lovers it was good but it was even too sweet and rich for them. I would make it again but I would half the sugar and corn syrup and it would still be sweet enough. I would also cover the top of the pie in the last 20 minutes of baking - the top got very brown even when it wasn't done enough inside so it was a little soupy. The next day it was excellent.

I wish i would have read the reviews before baking this. Definitely too sweet. Also too much chocolate it overpowers the pecan's flavor i would probably go with 3/4 c of chocolate if not a 1/2c. very good and very rich but try your own variation. Read More

When I made four of these pies for my college house of about twenty-five people one night I earned the nickname "Dessert Goddess." While the praise was rather overly effusive this is a great pie. VERY VERY rich though -- it needs vanilla ice cream or quite a bit of whipped cream to cut the chocolatey goodness a little. I'll definitely make it again. Read More

Great the 2nd day. So rich it goes a long way. Need to bake about 30 min. longer than recipe and give plenty of time to let it set. Over all pretty good. Read More

Although this went well at the bake-sale I took it to the 2nd one I made for home I thought was too rich. I think next time I would make either a chocolate pie OR a pecan one but not one with both things combined. Read More

I bake many pies during the holiday season and even though the flour in the filling threw me off I decieded to try it anyway. Horrible. That is all I can say. I baked it twice as long as the recipe called and finally it set. The texture was awful. The only thing edible on this pie was the crust...my own recipe. Read More
