Pecan pie is a beloved Southern dessert and a Thanksgiving fave (no offense, pumpkin!), but we found a way to make it even better — add chocolate, of course. To make this pie, you’ll need semisweet chocolate, eggs, corn syrup, sugar, vanilla extract, salt, pecans, and the pie crust. The result is ooey-gooey and utterly irresistible. Why not start with dessert? Watch and learn how to make this ooey-gooey chocolate pecan pie! The pie filling puffs up during baking but settles as it cools.
4 ounces semisweet chocolate, finely chopped
4 large eggs, lightly beaten
1 1/2 cups light corn syrup
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 recipe Basic Pie Crust, rolled and fit into a 9-inch pie plate
1 cup pecans
Move over pumpkin pie… Hello, pumpkin cake! This jaw-dropping four-layer pumpkin cake topped with pecans, caramel and velvety spiced pumpkin cream cheese frosting will be the talk of any Thanksgiving dinner years to come. Watch the video and learn how super easy it is to make this luscious pumpkin cake. If you wish to lighten this cake, substitute the regular cream cheese and whipped topping for PHILADELPHIA Neufchatel Cheese and COOL WHIP LITE Whipped Topping. If you wish to omit the caramel ice cream topping, microwave 10 KRAFT Caramels and 1 Tablespoon milk in microwaveable bowl on HIGH 2 minutes or until caramels begin to melt. Stir until caramels are completely melted. Drizzle over cake just before serving; top with nuts.
