Fudge Pecan Pie

By: Michaela Brown

Thanksgiving season is upon us, and I am counting my blessings this year! We all have our classic recipes, family traditions, tried and true dishes we make for our Thanksgiving feast. This is almost a classic! But, add a little cocoa and you get a true fudge like pecan pie. It is almost like eating a fudge candy bar, the chocolate, the crunch, the hearty pecan flavor. It would be a great addition to your families’ festivities this holiday season!
