PIES AND TACOS
This standout Pecan Fudge pie is filled with a sweet gooey pecan fudge filling, featuring a chocolate crust, and topped with dark chocolate ganache.
You will start with the crust. Simply process the regular graham crackers, sugar and cocoa. Go on with the standard procedure of mixing in the butter and baking the crust batter and have it be cooled down before poring the filling.
For the filling, you will need some powdered pecans. Just process in the food processor 2 cups of pecan halves.
Once you’ve obtained the powder from the pecans, add it to a pot along with 2 cans of sweetened condensed milk, and butter.
Once the fudge is super thick and ready, pour it over the baked and cooled down pie crust.
I went with a simple ganache for the pie, using the same amounts of chocolate and heavy cream 1:1 ratio. You could add a tablespoon of corn syrup to the ganache after you mixed the cream in, to help the ganache become shiny, if you so desire.
After making the ganache, let it sit for about 10 minutes, until it cools down slightly, and then pour it over the chilled pie.
You can go nuts on the decoration. Just don't forget to put pecans over it, as the rich ganache compliments the decadent nutty pecan.
