Chocolate Chip Pecan Pie in a Jar #SundaySupper

Sunday, June 23, 2013

Happy Birthday to Meeeeeee! Sorry, let me calm down. Happy Birthday to Me! Please tell me that I'm not the only person in their late twenties that still gets excited about their birthday. Most people I know are all like "Nooo, I'm almost 30." "I"m almost out of my 20's whaaaaaa". "This is my 5th "21st" Birthday".

However I'm over here just like "YAY, It's my birthday, I made it another year!" Is that weird? Please tell me I'm not alone.  I'm a lovely age of 28 today and proud of it :)

I also have this weird thing where on my birthday I feel like I could take on the world. It's totally my day and even the air feels lighter. It's probably just because I get super excited about my birthday haha. It's like being on vacation for the day because I literally do whatever I want.  So today is 100% my day!

Doing whatever I want includes having birthday cake, or birthday pie and birthday dinner with no guilt. I mean we all know that holiday foods have zero calories and my birthday is a holiday, so there you have it.

Have some Chocolate Chip Pecan Pie in a Jar and let's celebrate! It's probably also weird that I make pie for my birthday but hey... it's my birthday and I can do whatever I want.

Even though it's totally my day, I'm willing to share it with my wonderful #SundaySupper group. Today is all about Desserts in a Jar for #SundaySupper. These Chocolate Chip Pecan Pie in a Jar were inspired by Desserts in Jars by Shaina Olmanson. Shaina blogs over at and I've loved her book Desserts in Jars since I found it in my Mixed Con swag bag. It's so cute and while I don't make desserts in jars often, I do think that they make the cutest gifts!

Don't forget to keep reading after the recipe! I've got a giveaway for you and a whole list of #SundaySupper members that created their own desserts inspired by Desserts in Jars!


Don't fill the jars all the way to the top. They will indeed bake up and spill over if you do. But if that happens, just clean them up and push the pie back into the jar after they've cooled a bit. Then add  more pecans and chocolate chips to the top (I may have had to do that in the past haha)

If the tops of your jars are hinged but removable, remove them before baking. Just reattach them after they cool. 

(Printable Recipe Here)
Chocolate Chip Pecan Pie in a Jar


2 large eggs
1.5 cups brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup melted butter
2 tablespoon all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons milk
1/2 cup pecan halves, chopped
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
1/4 cup pecan halves (for the tops of the pies)
1/2 tablespoon mini chocolate chips (for the tops of the pies)
2 cups graham cracker crumbs
3 tablespoons melted butter

8 small-medium size glass jars


Preheat the oven to 350F.
In a small bowl mix together graham cracker crumbs and melted butter. Press graham cracker crumbs into bottoms of jars to form a "crust"

In the bowl of a stand mixer, mix together the brown sugar, sugar and eggs. Mix until everything is combined and creamy.

Mix in the melted butter, milk and flour. Stir to combine.

Slowly stir in 1/2 cup chopped pecans and 1/2 cup cup mini chocolate chips.

Distribute the mixture into the 8 glass jars. Don't fill the jars all the way to the top though because they may spill over when baking if you do.Sprinkle, or neatly arrange, pecan halves over the top of the pies. Sprinkle a few cup mini chocolate chips over the top as well.
Place jars on a cookie sheet and bake for 45-50 minutes or until the tops are browned and the center jiggles just a bit when moved. If you've filled the jars too much and they have spilled over, just clean them up and push the pie back into the jar after they've cooled a bit. Then add  more pecans and chocolate chips to the top.

Set the pies on a wire rack and let cook for 10 minutes or so. Middle of pies will firm up once cooled.
Eat while warm.
