Chocolate Butterscotch Pecan Tart

I have a small confession to make… It’s a mortal sin in the blogging world, but I’m gonna come out and admit to it.

I am not a die-hard pumpkin everything fan. There I said it!

Will you still be my friend?         Thanks so much 🙂

I love chocolate and butterscotch, so I decided to make an amazingly easy tart that is a perfect replacement for a traditional pecan pie.

A sweet drizzle of butterscotch over a chocolate buttercsotch pecan tart. It's an amazing dessert.

I do love a good pumpkin pie, but honestly, will all the pumpkin cookies, brownies, cakes, crackers, frosting, drinks… well, I can’t stand it all. It’s too much.

So I decided that I wasn’t going to succumb to the pumpkin goddesses of  blogland. Nope, I’m going with the no-fail Chocolate route!

I liked this fun twist of the sweet butterscotch added to the chocolate to make this nontraditional pecan pie. Once the chocolate and butterscotch cool they harden and you end up with all the pecans coated in the sweet concoction.

Sweet and easy - this chocolate butterscotch pecan tart with soft whipped cream and butterscotch drizzle. It's a perfect dessert.

This Chocolate Butterscotch tart is part of a three part series including Butterscotch Sauce and Tart Crust recipe.

Three simple recipes for the best dessert! Homemade butterscotch sauce, an egg based tart crust and an easy chocolate butterscotch pecan filling! So good!!
