It seems pecan pie is a favorite among many any time of the year. Since I am partial to chocolate, fudge, etc., the combination of pecans and chocolate is the best of both worlds for me. This recipe is not only delicious, but very easy to prepare and bake. It is a nice variation from the normal pecan pie.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Love chocolate? Love pecans? You'll love this pecan fudge pie. It's rich and fudgy with crunchy pecans in every bite. The top forms a sugary crust once baked. Adding a dollop of whipped cream when serving is a delicious final touch. This simple-to-make pie will be a great addition to any holiday menu.
