Chocolate Pecan Pie with Four Roses Bourbon is another whiskey dessert to satisfy your sweet tooth. Pecan pie is one of many traditional desserts of the southern states and when chocolate and whiskey is added you can only imagine the rich flavor to come. Since I have always been a fan of pecan pie, having grown up in Georgia, I was extremely excited when I came across a Chocolate Pecan Pie made with Four Roses bourbon whiskey. This recipe called for Makers Mark; however, I decided to give Four Roses a try instead.
When I came across the Chocolate Pecan Pie with Makers Mark recipe at the HerKentucky website a few months ago, I figured that substituting with Four Roses could be a great change that my fans, family and work mates could sample and enjoy. The pie can be served as is or with a scoop or two of ice cream, custard or whatever you prefer as your pie side item.
