Chocolate Walnut Pie – The Easiest Pie Recipe

Sharing is caring!


What would Thanksgiving be without pie?! I am one of those people who thinks that pie is superior to cake, and I love how pie takes center stage on Thanksgiving. I believe that you need to serve at least two pies on Thanksgiving and that one needs to be a fruit pie (like apple or pumpkin) and the second needs to involve chocolate. This Chocolate Walnut Pie is a delicious option. It has a lighter texture with chunks of walnuts. It’s definitely on the sweeter side but the slight bitterness from the chocolate balances it out. You can taste just a hint of the bourbon.


Chocolate Walnut Pie has lots of crunchy walnut chunks in a gooey chocolate filling. It is decadent without being overly sweet. This pie isn’t as heavy as some other pies are – you can still make room for it in your belly even after eating Thanksgiving dinner.


This recipe is really easy. It’s one of those pie recipes that just involves mixing up some ingredients, pouring them into a frozen pie crust, and baking it. Trust me – anyone can successfully prepare this dessert (just remember to set a timer so you don’t accidentally burn the pie). Thanksgiving already involves so much baking, take advantage of this quick and easy recipe.


I recommend warming this pie up in the oven before serving. It tastes better when the chocolate has melted. I like to put small scoops of ice cream on each slice. This pie pairs wonderfully with caramel ice cream.


If you are on the hunt for more pie recipes, here are some of my favorites! My family loves my Bourbon Butterscotch Pie and I make it for Thanksgiving every year. A French Style Apple Rhubarb Pie has a crispy crumbly topping. And Pecan Pie with a shortbread crust is a classic that everyone loves!
