Holiday Chocolate Pecan Pie

Why not create an unusual holiday twist to an otherwise great pecan pie recipe? Here, I have added chocolate to enrich the basic pie to a seasonal masterpiece.


  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 tbsp corn starch
  • 1 cup Karo syrup
  • 1/4 cup Louisiana cane syrup
  • 1 tbsp vanilla
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • ½ cup Hershey Chocolate Morsels
  • pinch of cinnamon
  • pinch of nutmeg
  • 1 9-inch uncooked pie shell

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. In a large mixing bowl, combine sugar and corn starch. Add syrups vanilla, and beaten eggs and, using a wire whisk, blend thoroughly. Add chopped pecans and chocolate morsels and blend well into the mixture. Season with a pinch of cinnamon and nutmeg. Pour into pie shell and bake on the center rack of oven for 10 minutes. Then reduce temperature to 375 degrees F and bake for 35 minutes. Remove and allow to cool.
