Chocolate Pecan Pie

This is one of my all time favorites, combining southern pecan pie and chocolate. How bad can that be? It is really, really rich, and I like it best served a little warm with some whipped cream.

This is one of my all time favorites, combining southern pecan pie and chocolate. How bad can that be? It is really, really rich, and I like it best served a little warm with some whipped cream.

Yields1 Serving
Prep Time45 minsCook Time1 hr 10 minsTotal Time1 hr 55 mins
 2 tbsp Butter
 3 Unsweetened Chocolate
 2 tbsp Flour
 0.50 tsp Salt
 3 Eggs
 1 tsp Vanilla
 0.75 cup Sugar (White)
 2 Pecan Halves
 1 Dark Karo Syrup
1

Prepare the crust. See my note below, or buy the refrigerated crusts, which are a distant but still good second.

2

Spray cooking spray in a pyrex measuring cup or microwave safe bowl. Microwave chocolate squares for 3 minutes or until they are melted. Watch the carefully.

3

Add butter to melted chocolate. It can melt by itself or you can microwave it another 15 seconds.

4

In separate large bowl, mix sugar, salt, and flour. Stir in eggs and Karo syrup. Add Chocolate/Butter Mixture. Add Vanilla and Pecans and mix together.

5

Pour into pie shell. Bake at 350 for 60-70 minutes, until it slightly browned on top and a knife comes out clean.

You need a pie crust. I suggest the Martha Stewart recipe.
