Absolutely delicious, although very rich. Pie version of the turtle chocolates. I used to sell this pie to a restaurant and the customers loved it.
INGREDIENTS (for 8 servings):
- 1 cup pecans
- 1 (9 inch) pie shell, baked
- 1 cup sweetened condensed milk
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1 cup butter
- 1/4 cup corn syrup
- 2/3 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1 egg yolk
- 3 tablespoons sweetened condensed milk
Place pecans into bottom of pie shell.
To Make Filling: In a heavy saucepan over medium heat, cook condensed milk, brown sugar, butter and corn syrup. Stir and bring to a boil; stir continuously for at least 5 minutes. Remove from heat, then slowly beat with a spoon until mixture starts to thicken; will take about 2 minutes. Be sure not to over beat or it will harden too much. Pour mixture into pie shell; cover and refrigerate for about an hour. Filling ingredients may be halved to make for a less rich pie.
To Make Topping: In a medium saucepan, cook chocolate and butter over low heat until melted together. Stir in condensed milk; mix well. Remove from heat; allow to cool just enough so that yolk won't cook when added, but not so cool that the chocolate hardens; cooling time will be about 3 minutes. Stir in egg yolk to chocolate mixture; spread over cooled filling. Place pie back in refrigerator and cool for another hour.
