Bourbon Molasses Chocolate Pecan Pie
Boston is one of the most historical cities in the U.S. and as you walk through the city it is so apparent. There are so many historical sites. So many, in fact, that there is a walking trail you can follow through the city to hit some of the biggest historical spots. But the historical fact I find most interesting is not part of the trail.
On January 15, 1919, a silo filled with molasses burst open and flooded the North End neighborhood, killing 21 people and injuring 150. It’s such a unique and interesting story that, at least outside of Boston, seems mostly unknown. Because I now live in the North End, and because this week marks the 100th anniversary of the flood, I have made a dessert to honor this event. It combines my southern roots with my Boston home. It’s Bourbon and it’s Molasses. A taste of both of my homes combined in a pie.

This pie is so incredibly easy! Mix together all the ingredients in a bowl. Pour the mixture into a pie crust. Sprinkle more chocolate chips on top because, obviously. Bake. Boom, done!
How to Serve Bourbon Molasses Chocolate Pecan Pie
I think my favorite way to eat this pie is warmed up with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, but this pie can be served room temperature, or even cold. This pie is delicious no matter how you serve it!
This pie works perfectly for a Derby party or your Thanksgiving table or brunch, anything in between!
