Have you ever wondered why every bite of that chocolate pecan pie is so sinfully delightful? Speculate no more. Here is a recipe for that homemade chocolate pecan pie that no one can resist.
Prepare the following ingredients:
* 3 eggs
* 1 cup light corn syrup
* 1/8 teaspoon salt
* 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
* 1 cup light brown sugar, firmly packed
* 2 tablespoons melted butter
* 2 squares (2 ounces) unsweetened chocolate, melted
* 1 cup pecan halves
* pie shell, unbaked, 9-inch
* sweetened whipped cream or whipped topping
Preheat the oven. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, whisk eggs to beat slightly. Stir in the corn syrup, melted chocolate, salt, brown sugar, vanilla, and butter. Stir until smooth to blend the ingredients well. Next, add the nuts and stir. Pour this into the unbaked pie shell. Put this in the oven and bake for 15 minutes at 400°F. Reduce the heat to 350°F and let the chocolate pecan pie bake for 30 to 35 minutes more. The outer rim of the filling should be set before you take the pecan pie out to cool.
There are so many different things you can try to make your chocolate pecan pie more delicious. You can decorate the edge with whipped topping. You can serve the chocolate pecan pie with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream for humid summer days. You can add a splash of dark rum or bourbon whiskey to enhance the faint bittersweet, caramel-like taste of the pecans in the pie. The darker taste of the rum or bourbon also offsets the inherent sweetness of the pie. You can include a pinch each of cinnamon and nutmeg to add that extra spice to an already great chocolate pecan pie. Honey and rum can be substituted for the corn syrup. Chocolate chips can also be used in place of the unsweetened squares of chocolate for a more tangible taste of chocolate bits in the pecan pie. Other chocolate pecan pies have been laced with espresso, kahlua, molasses, or bourbon vanilla sauce. You can try these for your own distinctive chocolate pecan pie.
