National Chocolate Pecan Pie Day

Posted on at

Today, August 20th, is National Chocolate Pecan Pie Day.

Pecan pie is a popular dish in the US, especially in the Southern US, although the earliest recorded recipe only dates back to 1897.

The pie is made primarily from corn syrup, although other syrups such as maple, sugar and molasses can be used, and pecan nuts. Other flavourings can also be added.

Chocolate pecan pie is, not surprisingly, pecan pie with added chocolate.
