Who doesn’t like chocolate and nuts together? I think it is the combination of sweet and salty that we crave. Whenever I eat chips, I end up having a piece of chocolate to top it off.
So for #Choctoberfest with Imperial Sugar, I knew I wanted to make a recipe that combines these two tasty ingredients.

I found a recipe for mini chocolate pecan pies on Mom On Timeout. It has that perfect combination of sweet and salty that I was looking for.
I started gathering my ingredients and as usual I didn’t have enough of one of the ingredients. I didn’t have enough pecans. We live in a pretty rural area of Pennsylvania, which means it is a great place to raise a family and enjoy nature… but if you need to “run to the store” it takes about an hour. So we have to improvise when we haven’t planned ahead! I mixed pecans and walnuts. It works really well… I think even better than with just pecans alone.
Instead of using a regular size muffin pan, I used the mini pans. I wanted just a bite, so they are perfect for parties and cookie trays. The holidays are coming!
I couldn’t hardly wait until the tart cooled off so I wouldn’t burn my tongue. Warm, gooey nut and chocolate filling in a cream cheese crust was just wonderful. It was hard not to eat just one. Yum, yum, yum!!!!
Here’s the recipe… and keep scrolling for a full list of all of the yummy #Choctoberfest recipes being posting today!
