Rich, indulgent, and gooey, Chocolate Fudge Pecan Pie Recipe is quick and easy, requires no mixer, and has no corn syrup! It’s a delicious new classic!
So let’s clarify! This is not chocolate chip pecan pie. No, no. The pie itself is chocolate and it’s filled with pecans. If you’re familiar with my Chocolate Chess Pie, the base of this pie recipe is really similar to it but has the addition of wonderfully crunchy pecans.
There’s a pecan layer then a gooey chocolate fudge layer all on a flaky crust. It’s just heavenly!
Additionally, this pecan pie does not have corn syrup in it. Now, it has plenty of sugar, but no corn syrup!
You can also easily make this pie without a mixer.
CHOCOLATE FUDGE PECAN PIE RECIPE
- You can use a premade pie crust or make one. I most often use my No Fail Pie Crust.
- It’s not mandatory that you toast the pecans. However, this allows the oils to come out of the nuts and deepens their flavor.
- Place the nuts in the bottom of the pie crust. Whisk the other ingredients together and pour over the pecans.
- It takes about an hour to bake this pie, but it’s worth the wait.
- Let the pie cool on the counter. It will set as it cools.
- Cover the pie tightly with foil or place in an airtight container and store in the refrigerator.
HOW TO TOAST NUTS
You can toast any nut in a skillet on top of the stove. Be sure to watch them carefully and stir them. This should only take 1-2 minutes for each batch of nuts. Additionally, you can place them on a sheet pan and toast them in the oven for 5-10 minutes.

- Add the sugar, brown sugar, and salt to chocolate and whisk until it's well combined. Add the eggs and vanilla and whisk till smooth.
- Spread the pecans in the bottom of the pie crust and pour the filling over the top. If desired, garnish the top with whole pecans.
- Bake at 325°F for 50 to 60 minutes, or until the center of the pie is no longer jiggly. The top may crack and that's normal.
- Cool for several hours. The pie will set up as it cools.
