Chocolate Covered Pecan Pie Bites

You are in for such a treat with these Chocolate Covered Pecan Pie Bites! The Holiday Season is in full swing and I’m always looking for amazing dessert recipes with options! I love that you can either make this recipe with a homemade pumpkin pie or if time is short, purchase a store bought. Both versions are GREAT!

What a pleasure partnering with Karo® Syrup today to bring you a Holiday treat that will wow all of your guests!

After I baked a fantastic pecan pie, or pick up a great pre-baked pecan pie, I used a cookie scoop to make little pecan pie mounds. Drizzle with melted chocolate, let set and you’ve got yourself an adorable Holiday dessert that looks great on your table!

How To Make These Sweet Treats

Pecan Pie

You want to make sure you let your pecan pie cool completely before scooping the pie into bite size scoops. You can absolutely use a store-bought pecan pie for this recipe as well. Use a small-medium cookie scoop to form little bites then transfer to parchment paper.

Pecan Pie

Make sure you get pieces of pie crust in each bite.

Pecan Pie

Drizzle melted chocolate over each bite covering most of the bite. This helps keep the bite together.

        Cut to the chase. Buy a large piece from Costco or Sam’s and proceed to scooping. I would freeze or refrigerate before putting on chocolate to quicken the process of setting the chocolate.

        These look terrific! I will make these for parties. I just wanted to point out a typo you have. You said “scoop out the pumpkin pie pieces” I think you meant to say pecan pie pieces. Thank you for the wonderful idea.

      3. Billie

        In the instructions you say scoop out pumpkin pie pieces. Can you do this with pumpkin pie too? Can’t wait to try pecan pie pieces.

      4. Elizabeth Johnson

        For this recipe, do you also scoop the crust into the balls or what do you do with the crust after you scoop out pecan filling?

        1. Kathy

          The recipe states to make sure that you get some crust in each bite but I can’t imagine they’ll use up all of it. I don’t see replies to any of the comments or questions. How odd.

      5. You said to scoop out pumpkin pie bites but I think you ment pecan pie bites since that is the recipe given. I am sure you could do pumpkin pie bites too.

      6. Aunt Charley

        I couldn’t find the instructions for how to tell when the pecan pie is done. That has been my biggest problem when making pecan pie, so I really looked. This recipe sounds just like my mother made. This covered in chocolate sounds like heaven in my mouth!!!

      7. Kalyn

        If you’re just going to scoop the baked filling out of the pie crust why put it in a pie crust? Why not just put it in a baking dish and bake till done? This way you aren’t wasting a pie shell?

      8. Daisywulf

        I wish the author was responding, as I have the same question as several others; what type of chocolate? Milk, semi or bitter sweet? Dark? Almond bark? I find peacan pie very sweet, so I’ll try these with a darker chocolate, and see how it works. I really love the idea.
