Double Chocolate Pecan Pie


This such an easy pie to make. It is also perfect if you like chocolate. The recipe is from my husband's grandfather and we make it every year during the holidays.

2 - 6 oz bags of semi sweet chocolate morsels
2 eggs
1/8 tsp salt
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 cup chopped pecans
1 nine inch unbaked pie shell

Preheat oven at 375 degrees.

Melt 6 oz semi sweet chocolate over hot water. Remove and cool for 5 minutes.
Combine eggs and salt and beat until thick and lemon colored. Gradually beat in brown sugar. Blend in melted chocolate. Stir in pecans and 6 oz bag of semi sweet chocolate chips.
Pour into unbaked pie crust. Bake for 30 minutes or until set.

** I always seem to have deep dish pie crusts on hand (since I need them for traditional pecan pie) so I double the recipe. It works just fine. p

  1. That looks amazing (and easy, which is just as important)! I just made a pecan pie for Thanksgiving, and I kept saying it was missing something--that something was apparently chocolate!!
