Chocolate Pecan Pie

It is important to maintain a healthy and active lifestyle, but I also think it’s necessary to indulge in things you love every so often :)  I decided to make Chocolate Pecan Pie, which I have been wanting to do for a long time.  It was surprisingly really simple (granted, I did not make the crust myself).  I was a little nervous for it, but got great feed back from the party!

Ingredients

  • 1 unbaked pie crust
  • 2 cups of dark chocolate chips
  • 2 cups of pecan halves or pieces
  • 1 T flour
  • 1/2 c. butter
  • 1/2 c. packed light brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/2 c. dark corn syrup
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp salt
Chocolate Pecan Pie

Directions

  1. Beat butter and sugar in a large mixer bowl until well-blended.
  2. Add eggs, one at a time.
  3. Add in corn syrup, vanilla and salt.  (This may look a little curdled)
  4. Melt the chocolate chips
  5. Mix in one cup of pecans and melted chocolate chips.
  6. Lay the other cup of pecans in the pie crust, and lay the mixture over it.
  7. Bake at 325 degrees for 55-60 minutes or until outer edges are set.  (The center will still be jiggly)
  8. Sprinkle powdered sugar when cooled, if desired.
