Ingredients

Adjust Servings:
250g (1 cup) whipping cream 35% milk fat minimum
200g (7oz) dark chocolate
200g (7oz) whole pecans

Variations

short on time – chill in the freezer.

milk or white chocolate – don’t be tempted to substitute in milk or white chocolate because there won’t be enough cocoa butter coming from the chocolate to ‘set’ the pie.

dairy free – replace the cream with coconut milk OR other dairy-free milk like soy milk or almond milk. The flavour profile will change, but not necessarily in a bad way.

proper ‘pie’
– either pour the mixture into a pre-cooked and cooled pie crust. OR crush about 120g (4oz) roast nuts and mix with 30g (1oz) melted butter and spread over the base of the pan before filling with the chocolate mixture.

different nuts – feel free to use whatever nuts you have. Might be better to chop some nuts before sprinkling on top.

even lower carb – use 90% cocoa solids chocolate. You may or may not want to add a little stevia.

nut-free – use shaved toasted coconut or crushed cookies instead of the pecans.

orange – add the zest of an orange with the cream.

Shelf Life / Storage

Will keep in the fridge for over a week (if no one knows it’s there). The pecans will lose some of their crunch, but I don’t find it to be a problem. Can be frozen.

Looking for a thanksgiving treat that’s festive and decadent without being laden with sugar and carbs? Then look no further!

This isn’t really a tart or a pie because it doesn’t have a crust. But I’m sure there won’t be any complaints!

You could easily line the pan with some crushed roast nuts mixed with a little melted butter if you wanted to be more traditional.
