Growing up, I hated pecan pie. It was just too sickly sweet and full of a gooey tasting filling with nothing but nuts. I became a pecan pie loving soul when I first tried chocolate pecan pie with that almost cookie like taste with a flaky buttery pie crust! Since I also love german chocolate cake, I created this german chocolate pecan pie so I can get all my favorite flavors of chocolate, coconut and pecans, all in one amazing pie.

Since you’re a pie lover, don’t forget to check out our other favorite pumpkin pie and chocolate coconut cream pie. We make all 3 for the holidays since we can’t pick a favorite! And we always top it with the easiest homemade whipped cream.
