These Mini Chocolate Pecan Pies are a dream come true for the holidays! Sweet chocolate morsels are the perfect addition to traditional pecan pie and everybody loves this mini version!
Nothing shouts the holidays quite like pie, am I right? My favorite holiday pie is pecan pie. I have always been a HUGE nut lover and pecans are one of my favorites. Crunchy, sweet, and perfectly nutty, pecan pies are definitely the way to go this holiday season.
As much as I enjoy a traditional pecan pie, I’m a total sucker for anything mini. I think mini pecan pies are absolutely perfect for large groups and parties and really are the perfect size. I will be honest when I say that the crust of the pie is my least favorite part. I’m all about the filling…usually.
The crust on these mini pies is made out of butter, cream cheese and flour resulting in an out-of-this-world crust experience that leaves me craving just one more bite. After mixing up the crust, I form it into a log and it goes in the fridge while I’m whipping up the filling. Once the log has firmed up a bit, it’s easy to slice off pieces and fill the muffin tin.
The filling is scooped in and topped with a pecan half. I think it makes these mini pies even more adorable. I added chocolate chips to my favorite pecan pie filling for a little extra sweetness and surprise. Pecans go so well with chocolate!
