This is one of the MOST decadent desserts I make for my husband! It's so yummy. His three favorite desserts are pecan pie, cheesecake, and most anything with dark chocolate. This dessert has all three. It seems as though it would be difficult to bake but it really isn't. The results make it seem like it is!

Now, this is a very decadent and special dessert for the holidays. This dessert marries pecan pie with cheesecake. A layer of dark chocolate on top of the crust makes the pie very rich. If you prefer milk chocolate over dark, feel free to use that instead. When cut into, we love the layering look on each slice. When presented, this looks hard to make but it's a relatively easy to make holiday dessert. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
