Two all-time favorites - pecan pie and chocolate - come together in this extra rich pie.
INGREDIENTS (for 8 servings):
- 1 (9 inch) unbaked pie crust
- 1 cup light corn syrup
- 2/3 cup sugar
- 1/3 cup LAND O LAKES® Butter, melted
- 3 eggs
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup pecan halves
- 1/2 cup real semisweet chocolate chips
- LAND O LAKES® Gourmet Heavy Whipping Cream, whipped, if desired
- Pecan halves, if desired
- Semi-sweet real chocolate chips, melted, if desired
Heat oven to 375 degrees F. Place crust in 9-inch pie pan. Crimp or flute edge; set aside.
Combine corn syrup, sugar, butter, eggs and salt in small bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until well mixed. Stir in 1 cup pecans and 1/2 cup chocolate chips by hand.
Pour into prepared pie crust. Cover pie loosely with aluminum foil. Bake for 30 minutes. Remove aluminum foil; continue baking for 10 to 15 minutes or until filling is set. (If browning too quickly, recover with aluminum foil.) Cool; refrigerate at least 4 hours or until serving time.
Dip additional pecan halves halfway into melted chocolate chips; if desired. Cover; refrigerate until set. Serve pie with sweetened whipped cream and garnish with dipped pecan halves, if desired.
For a traditional pecan pie, omit 1/2 cup real semi-sweet chocolate chips in filling.
