Chocolate Covered Pecan Pie Bites

Tags: , , , ,

These Chocolate Covered Pecan Pie Bites are the perfect dessert to bring to your Holiday table.
Pecan Pie

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 Pumpkin Pie Bites

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.

Ahhhh, chocolate!

Beautiful little bites, worth every minute of prep work!

These work great with your pecan pie leftovers too!

        Oh my word, my husband would FLIP for these! They’re like homemade candy bar bites and pecan pie is his hands down favorite pie. What a fun idea Jenny!

        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.

        MD says:

        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.

        Billie says:

        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.

        Charlotte says:

        In #4 of directions for Chocolate Covered Pecan Pie Bites it says to scoop pumpkin pie instead of pecan pie. Will be making these for Christmas.

        Elizabeth Johnson says:

        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?

      22. 22
        Roxi says:

        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.

      23. 23

        you didn’t say what kind of chocolate you used. Was in from a can or made from scratch? What kind of choc. did you use? thank you

        Aunt Charley says:

        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!!!

          Opened the Karo recipe link provided and found the tip under item #5, funny, I used Karo syrup and don’t recall seeing the tip on the bottle. When making pecan pie, twice this past holiday, it was a bit too overdone the first time and just slightly the second time. Both times everyone still said it was delicious and no comparison to store bought. Hope you find this helps.
          RECIPE TIPS: Pie is done when center reaches 200°F. Tap center surface of pie lightly – it should spring back when done. For easy cleanup, spray pie pan with cooking spray before placing pie crust in pan. If pie crust is overbrowning, cover edges with foil.

        Kalyn says:

        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?
