National Pecan Pie Day: Fudge Brownie Pecan Pie

Today is National Pecan Pie Day, and I love pecan pie. There are so many variations, and I've posted many recipes for different types of pecan pies...all that include chocolate, of course.

Here's a round-up of Pecan Pie Recipes! Choose one and celebrate National Pecan Pie Day!

Chocolate Chunk Pecan Pie for Mardi Gras
Kentucky Derby Chocolate Pecan Pie
Kentucky Derby Bourbon Chocolate Pie
Bourbon Chocolate Pecan Pie

And a new recipe for: Fudge Brownie Pie from the North Carolina Pecan Growers Association. It's a winner. This is so easy--and not what you'd expect! Delicious.

Fudge Brownie Pecan Pie

1 unbaked pie shell (I use Trader Joe's frozen pie dough)
6 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips (or 6-7 ounce dark chocolate bar-fair trade 70-85% cacao)
1/4 cup sweet butter
1/2 cup biscuit mix
1 cup chopped pecans
1 teaspoon Madagascar vanilla (I like Madecasse--you can also substitute Bourbon here)
14 ounces sweetened condensed milk

Bake pastry shell at 375F for 10 minutes.
Remove from oven.
Reduce oven temperature to 325F.
In a saucepan melt chips with butter.
In large bowl beat chocolate mixture with remaining ingredients.
Pour into shell.
(You can also add 1/2 pecan pieces on top and sprinkle with grated chocolate before baking)
Bake 35 to 45 minutes.
Serve warm with ice cream.
