We Texans sure do love our pecan pie. So this holiday season, why not dress it up with a decadent twist.

This delicious ooey-gooey chocolate pecan pie will win raves at the dessert table. Just add whipped cream and enjoy!

Ingredients:

  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup light corn syrup
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 1/2 cups pecan halves
  • Whipped cream, for topping

Directions: 

  1. Preheat your oven to 325 F.
  2. In a mixing bowl, beat the eggs, corn syrup, sugar, melted butter, and vanilla extract with an electric mixer on medium speed until they are well-blended. Stir in chocolate chips and pecans.
  3. Pour filling into pie crust.
  4. Bake for 55 to 60 minutes. After removing from the oven, allow the pie to cool completely.
