    This is one of my favorite pies in the world. I have made it for special occasions for several years. Stays well for the holiday week!! A must for pecan lovers!

    I've made this several times, for family and for holidays and it is always a hit. My boyfriend brags about it to everyone and best of all, it is very easy.

    I have made this numerous times for friends/family/coworkers. Every time I get threats for not giving up the recipe. It is SPECTACULAR. I have tried with Jack, Knob Creek, Woodford Reserve, Makers Mark and a number of different whiskeys/bourbons. Makers Mark is by far the best - the right sweetness with a little punch. Have been told this is the best pecan pie ever from people who don't even eat pecan pies......

    I have made pecan pie for many years & those made with chocolate are OK, but the best pecan pie simply has a bit of Bourbon & the pie must never be too soft. Chocolate only gets in the way of that wonderful pecan pie taste

    LOVE this one! I have made it 3 yrs in a row for Thanksgiving..always the first pie to go. One year I made it with a cream cheese crust..sooo good:)

    I agree with dawn1938.......if you haven't had Bourbon Pecan Pie.........try that first. Chocolate gets in the way and takes the pure pecan flavor away.........overkill for sure with chocolate in it!

    SO easy, and ingredients are easy to come by and can keep them on hand for a quick and easy dessert. Moderate whiskey undertones, so be prepared!

    I had this pie a couple of years ago when someone else had made it. I decided I would give it a shot since I loved it sooo much. Made two for Thanksgiving. Turned out spectacular. Very heavy and firm and ohhhhhhh.....sooo delicious! I had to stop myself from eating three slices!

    this wasnt good at all, thumbs down i didnt use bourbon though i used water so maybe it would be better with the bourbon.

    This was very easy to make and tasted great! I don't know why you would make a recipe titled "chocolate-bourbon pecan pie" without the bourbon. The flavors blended very well together and was a hit with the family for Thanksgiving!

    Delicious!!! I have made this with dark corn syrup and I've made it light. Preferred the light. Quite a hit with the family.
