Rich Chocolate Pecan Pie ~ by Caroline

I have always loved pecan pie, but chocolate pecan pie is even better!  After trying out several different recipes, we have decided that this one is definitely the BEST!  Enjoy! 

  • 1 1/2 cups pecans
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 unbaked 9-inch pie shell
  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup corn syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Pinch salt

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
Spread the pecan pieces and the chocolate chips evenly on the bottom of the pie shell.
In a mixing bowl, whisk the remaining ingredients together.  Pour the filling over the pecans.  Bake until the filling sets, 50 to 60 minutes.  Remove from the oven and let cool for 30 minutes before slicing.
I actually tried doubling the filling last time I made this, and it turned out great!  But either way is awesome.  :)
