Rich Chocolate Pecan Pie

Submitted by: ABIZZLE7

Introduction

this is NOT low calorie! I entered this to see just HOW MANY calories a SMALL piece of pie is. I even used light corn syrup. It tastes really great, but should be made for occasions where you'll share it (i brought mine in to work).

Number of Servings: 12

Ingredients

    1 1/2 cups pecans
    1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
    1 unbaked 9-inch pie shell
    4 eggs, beaten
    1/2 cup sugar
    1/2 cup light brown sugar
    1/2 cup corn syrup
    1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
    Pinch salt
    Caramel Sauce, for garnish, recipe follows
    Confectioners' sugar, for garnish


Directions

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

Spread the pecan pieces and the chocolate chips evenly on the bottom of the pie shell.

In a mixing bowl, whisk the remaining ingredients together. Pour the filling over the pecans. Bake until the filling sets, 50 to 60 minutes. Remove from the oven and cool for 30 minutes before slicing. Cut into individual servings and serve with a drizzle of Caramel Sauce and sprinkle with confectioners' sugar.

Yield: 1 (9-inch) pie

Caramel Sauce

3/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons water
1/2 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
1/2 cup heavy cream
2 tablespoons to 1/4 cup whole milk

Combine the sugar, water, and lemon juice in a medium heavy saucepan and cook over medium-high heat, stirring, until the sugar dissolves. Let boil without stirring until the mixture becomes a deep amber color, 2 to 3 minutes, watching closely so it doesn't burn. Add the cream (be careful; it will bubble up), whisk to combine, and remove from the heat.

Add 2 tablespoons of the milk, then add up to 2 more tablespoons, until the desired consistency is reached. Let cool until just warm before serving. (The sauce will thicken as it cools.)

  • Just for the record, "light" corn syrup refers only to the color, not the calorie content! - 10/19/11

  • This was excellent, but your correct, definately not good for the diet. I did cut it into 16 pieces though as it was so rich. - 3/7/10

  • I really liked this, but I was looking for more of a pecan tasting pie but the chocolate flavor overpowered the pecans. It was really easy and fast to make, but I was too lazy to make the caramel sauce to go with it. This was my first time making any type of pecan pie and it turned out great. - 1/1/09
