Sweetened Condensed Milk Chocolate Pie

This Chocolate Pecan Pie is a holiday favorite! Creamy chocolate pie loaded with chopped pecans. This recipe is not like a classic pecan pie; there is no corn syrup in this recipe. The base of the pie is sweetened condensed milk. The condensed milk gives the pie a silky smooth texture and the perfect amount of sweetness. One bite and you are sure to agree.
