Well I needed a dessert for NYE and I thought what a perfect opportunity to come up with something new for the site...You’re welcome.

I love a pecan pie...and this is a tweak with my other fave ingredient, chocolate. How can that ever be wrong?? (It cannot, seriously.) SO...I hope you enjoy this as much as we are going to. It has been a huge year and here I am on the last day of the year, writing up a recipe. Now, that’s dedication for you!

Happy 2016 kids. It’s going to be huge.

To roast a vanilla bean, place into cold oven set to 200°C for 10 minutes. I usually roast a few beans at a time and keep them in a ziploc bag until use. I used a freeze dried vanilla bean this time around, but I don’t always have those handy!
