Chocolate Pecan Pie
* 3/4 cup sugar
* 1/2 teaspoon salt
* 1 cup light corn syrup
* 3 ounces baking chocolate, Melt & Cool
* 3 tablespoons butter or regular margarine
* 3 eggs
* 1 teaspoon vanilla
* 1 cup chopped pecans or pecan halves
* 1 unbaked 9-inch pie shell
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Melt the chocolate and butter in the microwave. I would do this in the mixing bowl to save on clean-up.
Combine the sugar, salt, corn syrup, eggs, vanilla and the melted chocolate/butter mixture in a large mixing bowl.
Beat the mixture until it is well blended, using an electric mixture set to medium speed.
Stir in the pecans and pour the mixture into an unbaked pie shell.
Bake for 35 minutes or until pie is set. The pie will be puffy when it comes out of the oven and will sink while cooling. Cool on a wire rack.
Another one of the Hubby's favorites, my sister-in-law was the one that gave me this recipe.
