There's So Much To Love About Chocolate Chip Toffee Pecan Pie
This pie is reminiscent of a Derby Pie and the addition of toffee chips adds another dimension of flavor. The toffee melts while the pie is baking and mingles with the sugar and butter to form a gooey caramel layer. One bite and you'll understand how that small addition takes this pie over-the-top.
Can This Pie Be Made In Advance?
Yes, it can be made in advance. When doing so, allow it to cool completely, then reheat each piece and drizzle with chocolate ganache just before serving. Southern pecans shine in this pie but you can use walnuts or any of your favorite nuts in their place. I recommend that you use a frozen pie crust due to the length of time it requires to bake. It helps keep the edges from over baking. If you use a homemade crust, check it halfway through baking and cover the edges of the crust, if needed to avoid that issue. Admittedly, the chocolate ganache drizzle is gilding the lily but it's so very good! Chocolate ganache is optional but, ice cream isn't.
