And for dessert....

Decadent Chocolate Pecan Pie

(The calories are all in your head!!)

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 ½ cup chopped pecans
  • 4 eggs
  • ½ cup each of light brown sugar & white sugar
  • ½ cup Karo corn syrup
  • ½ tsp vanilla
  • 1-  9” unbaked pie shell

DIRECTIONS:

1.      PreHeat oven to 375 degrees

2. Gather & Measure ALL your ingredients and then put in separate bowls and put aside. Beat the eggs and put aside. Have your pie shell ready to go…and NOW, let’s get started!!!

3.      Put chocolate chips into bowl and microwave for 1 minute. Take out and stir. Then add chopped pecans to chocolate chips and stir until mixed.

4.      Now take that mixture and cover the bottom of the pie shell.

5.      In a separate mixing bowl, whisk the remaining ingredients together and then pour on top of the pecan/chocolate layer.

6.      Put into preheated oven and cook for about 50-60 minutes. *** If using a convection oven cooking time may be cut in half**** be sure NOT TO BURN!! Bake until filling sets.

7.      Remove from the oven and cool for 30 minutes or if not serving immediately, cover and keep on counter. (good for up to 2 days!)

*** A nice whipped cream or caramel sauce would be great on top….or just have it all by its lonesome!!!!!
