Chocolate Chip Pecan Pie Recipe

I have been craving pecan pie for months and not just any pecan pie... I remembered a chocolate chip pecan pie that I had made years and years ago.

I wasn't sure I was going to remember how to make it but I decided I had to give it a try.



For my pie I needed:

one pie crust (I used this recipe)
1 cup chocolate chips
3 eggs, beaten
1 cup corn syrup (I prefer light)
2/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup butter, melted (and cooled)
1 tsp. vanilla
1 1/4 cups pecan halves

I rolled out my pie crust and lined my pie plate and preheated the oven to 350.


Then I poured in 1 cup of chocolate chips; making sure the bottom of the crust was even layered with them.


In a separate bowl I mixed together the eggs, corn syrup, butter, sugar, and vanilla.  I added the pecans to my pie plate and poured the egg mixture over the whole thing.  I then covered up the edges of my pie with tin foil and popped the whole thing in my preheated oven.

I baked the pie at 350 for 25 minutes.


I removed the foil and continued baking for another 25 minutes or so until the knife inserted in the middle of the pie came out clean.



I set it aside to cool before slicing into it.


It takes a bit like pecan pie meets Tollhouse pie and it was gone in just a few short days!



I prefer my pie heated just a bit so the chocolate is nice and melted then top the whole thing off with a nice big dollop of Cool Whip!

  1. It's my husband's favorite pie and yet I've never made it for him. I just realized what a horrible wife I am, lol. I like the addition of chocolate in your pie. Maybe I will surprise him with your recipe one day... :)

    1. If you use refrigerated/ ready to use pie crust it's actually one of the easier pies to make.
