Easy Chocolate Bourbon Pecan Pie Recipe

We're sharing a Chocolate Bourbon Pecan Pie recipe. It looks (and better yet tastes) impressive, but is actually quite simple to make.

Thanksgiving is just around the corner, you all! Do you have your Thanksgiving Dinner menu finalized? After much internet scouring (here’s looking at you, Pinterest), I am wrapping up my own, and I couldn’t help but share this decadent Chocolate Bourbon Pecan Pie recipe with all of you because nothing says Thanksgiving in the South like bourbon and pie. Can I get an amen?

This pie looks (and better yet tastes) impressive but is simple to make. My favorite part about this recipe is using a store-bought nine-inch, unbaked pie shell. That’s right, ladies, why go to the trouble of making our own when we can pick up a perfectly fine, ready-made crust from the grocery store? This is Thanksgiving — we’re going to be cooking all day. So why not save some time and energy where we can? Am I right? Let’s get started.
