I LOVE pecan pie, and adding chocolate is sinfully delicious! These can be very rich, so they are another one that I like to cut into small squares and place into decorative paper or foil candy cups. So pretty and festive on holiday cookie trays! Photo from bing images.

Karma! I have a new bottle of vanilla from King Arthur and I just bought pecans this afternoon. This is a save. Thanks for sharing.
