Chocolate Pecan Pie

This recipe is made with  the two best items in the world…chocolate and pecans. It can be made with a store bought pastry crust or your own homemade. Either way, it is truly a yummy dessert. When I get to Heaven I hope they have pecan anything…..

 

  • 1  1/2 cups pecan halves
  • 1 pastry crust (9″)
  • 3/4 cups dark chocolate wafers
  • 1 tbsp. flour, extra for coating the chocolate
  • 3 large eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1 cup light corn syrup
  • 1/2 tsp. pure vanilla
  • 1/4 cup melted butter

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spread the pecans evenly over the pastry crust.

In a small bowl toss the chocolate chips with flour then scatter over the pecans. In a medium bowl, mix together the eggs, sugar, corn syrup, vanilla and butter until thoroughly combined. Pour over the pecans and chocolate wafers.

Bake until set and the crust has browned and this should take about 70 minutes. Don’t let the pastry burn. Cover with tin foil or a pastry ring protector for pies. Remove and let cool on a rack for a good 1 1/2 hours.

Serve warm or room temperature with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.

In a word: YUMMY!
