chocolate pecan pie

Rich and delicious... pecan pie has never tasted so good!  (Also a Thanksgiving tradition at our house that started when I made my first Thanksgiving dinner.)

1 pie crust (I use the frozen ones)

3 eggs, slightly beaten

1 cup light-colored corn syrup

2/3 cup sugar

1/3 cup butter, melted

1 tsp vanilla

1 cup pecans halves

1/2 - 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips (depends on how rich you want it)


*Preheat oven to 350

*In medium bowl combine eggs, corn syrup, sugar, butter, and vanilla; mix well.  Stir in pecan halves and chocolate chips.

*Pour into pie shell, bake until set, about 45 minutes (use foil ring to prevent crust from burning).

*Cool on wire rack.  Drizzle with melted chocolate, if desired.
