This is made just like a traditional pecan pie, with the addition of chocolate chips. It is very fudgy. It is always the first dessert to go at our family's Thanksgiving! Originally submitted to ThanksgivingRecipe.com.

Made this for T-Day 03...Good Lord this was chocolately!! I used only 3/4 cup of chocolate chips & it was STILL too chocolately! My husband however ate it up like it was his last meal ever! My tips: use less chocolate chips when mixing bake for 30 minutes & cover with a foil tent (stick a toothpick in the center & layer foil over it like a tent....otherwise the foil will stick to the pecans) then finish baking so you have a pretty golden pie. Thanks for sharing the recipe; will definitely make this again! Read More

I tried making this pie for Thanksgiving and it was flop. I followed the recipe and the top of the pie burned (not the crust) and the inside wasn't even cooked. I was very disappointed. Read More

this recipe was awesome!!! i made it for my brother in law from L.A. although going by other reviews I decreased the chocolate morsels to one cup and I used dark karo syrup instead and I added a capful of premium vanilla flavor I cook it by 9 PM and by the following morning it was gone! so I have to make another one. this one is definitly a keeper.

This pie is easy to make and bakes up beautifully but it's just too sweet for our palates. If you love chocolate and have an awesome sweet tooth don't pass this one up. Read More

I made this for my husband because he loves pecan pie and he loves chocolate pie so I thought he'd really love this. I don't like chocolate or pecans so I can't comment but based on his response this will not be made in this house again. He said the chocolate was completely overpowering and I used less than was called for. I gave a few slices to my brother and he said it was only OK. Read More

There was so much filling for this pie that it overflowed in the oven while it cooked. I suggest using a deep dish pie crust. I used less chocolate then called for and it still overpowered the pecan taste. My family said I should just call it a chocolate pie. The pie was so rich I felt my heart racing minutes after eating it. I LOVE rich desserts but this one was too much. Read More

I made 1 and 1/2 recipes. I made 2 beautiful pies and did not run over the sides. I did not measure my pecans I just placed them in a circular pattern on top of the pie. It bubbled up enough that it coated the pecans. Yummy. I also used some dark chocolate wafers that I had lying around approx 1 cup. Again Yummy. Read More
