Chocolate Pecan Pie

The title of this post should make your mouth start watering right away!  For Christmas Eve dinner (I know, late posting), which I cook for both sets of grandparents and my parents, I decided to try a new recipe my friend Kristen gave me.  Voila, chocolate pecan pie that will make you whimper and is even better leftover.  Mama Jill, Big Pappy and I split the last of it by the fire pit with glasses of wine....helloooo delectable!

Not the most glamorous of pics, but delicious!!

Chocolate Pecan Pie

-I cheated and used a store bought pie crust
-3 large eggs
-3/4 cup packed dark brown sugar
-2/3 cup light corn syrup
-1 teaspoon vanilla extract
-1/2 teaspoon salt
-2 tablespoons melted butter
-1 2/3 cups toasted pecans, coarsely chopped (toast 7-10 minutes on 375 degrees)
-3/4 cup semi sweet chocolate chips (I was very generous!)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees and position oven rack to the center of the oven.  In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, brown sugar, syrup, vanilla, salt and melted butter.  Stir in the pecans and the chocolate chips, then place the filling into the pie shell.  Bake for 30-35 minutes or until the filling puffs up slightly but still feels a bit jiggly and moist in the center.  It took Mama Jill's oven about 33 minutes.  I made homemade whip cream and served on top.  Super easy and super delish!
