  • In medium mixing bowl beat eggs lightly with a rotary beater or fork. Stir in corn syrup, sugar, and butter; mix well. Stir in pecan and chocolate pieces.

  • To prevent overbrowning, cover edges of pie shell with aluminum foil. Place pie shell on oven rack and pour filling into it.

  • Bake in preheated oven for 25 minutes. Remove foil from crust edges and bake an additional 25 minutes, or until a knife inserted in center comes out clean. Chill before serving. May be served with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.

Absolutely a wonderful pie. For those who find that their pie was runny be sure to use a quality corn syrup Karo or better. I have used store brand corn syrup and my pies never set up no matter how long they cooked. This may not be the reason yours didn't set up but it's something to check. Read More

My knife never came out clean. I ended up cooking it too long. I did use Karo syrup. My husband ate it anyway but he will eat anything chocolate. Read More

So good! I made this for Christmas and everyone loved it. I added whole pecans to the top for a better look and they got a little burned. Probably won't do that again! Read More

A friend served this pie one day and I had to have the recipe. Only change she made was to increase chocolate chips to 1 cup and instead of mixing them in the filling she layered them on the bottom crust before adding the filling. Best Pie I have ever had! When I made it I followed her directions and got rave reviews. Everyone wanted the recipe. This is definately a keeper!!! Read More

I've been making this pie for years. It is the absolute best. I can't wait each thanksgiving/Christmas to make it. It's a special treat. I always melt the chocolate and butter together in the microwave first and add to the eggs. Then whisk in the corn syrup to keep from cooking the eggs. I highly recommend melting the chocolate.
