Chocolate Pecan Pie

I have kind of become obsessed with making pies, so I'm using the excuse of blog content to enable my obsession, haha. I mean, who doesn't love pie?! I guess the only problem is that Will and I are the only ones here to eat them, but that's what the gym is for right, haha! I'm the worst with the gym as the main reason why I go is so I can eat all the yummys without (hopefully) gaining extra weight. 

This pie uses the same ingredients as the walnut pie I shared last week, with the addition of chocolate. That's one of my favorite things about these kinds of pies: you can pretty much substitute the type of nut you use and come up with a great pie. 

Ingredients:
Pie Crust (I used store bought but when I do make my own crust I always use this recipe)
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar (if you like sweeter pecan pies use 3/4 cup)
4 Tbs melted butter
5 Tbs vanilla
3 eggs 
1/2 cup light corn syrup (if you like sweeter pecan pies use 1 cup)
2 cups pecans
10 dark chocolate minis (I used the individually wrapped ones from the Hershey's variety bag)

Preheat your oven to 350. While the oven is heating mix together the sugars, butter, vanilla, eggs, and light corn syrup, mix on medium speed until well combined. While your ingredients are mixing go ahead and place your dough in your 9" pie pan. Next break up your dark chocolate and place on dough, then cover with pecans. You can use either whole pecans or break them up by hand.

Cover pie with tinfoil and cook for 20 minutes, remove tinfoil and cook for an addition 25-30 minutes (keep an eye on the crust to make sure it doesn't burn as all ovens are different). If the pie still has some jiggle to it then cover with tinfoil and cook for another 15 minutes. Let cool (personally I think it tastes best cold) add a little whipped cream and enjoy.

Let me know if you give it a try!
