Hey, y'all! You'll find many versions of this Kentucky Chocolate Nut Pie around the state, as it is an integral part of our cuisine. Though it's easy to purchase out and about, it's even easier to make at home! As such, I'm thrilled to be sharing my Mini Chocolate Nut Pie Recipe with you today. The secret to my recipe is two-fold. Firstly, I use Rivulet Pecan Liqueur in the batter. Secondly, instead of using either pecans or walnuts... I use both!
This post is in partnership with Rivulet. Thank you all for supporting the brands that make JCP Eats possible. All opinions expressed are my own.

Mini Chocolate Nut Pie: The Ingredients
About Rivulet Pecan Liqueur
Rivulet® Artisan Pecan Liqueur is handcrafted in Louisville, KY. Rivulet starts with a 2-year-old, barrel-aged brandy. They then use a proprietary process to obtain the exquisite pecan essence, which I know y’all will love. It’s a deep flavor — one that is signature to the brand — and I can’t get enough of it. I also love that it’s local!
