National Chocolate Pecan Pie Day!

National Chocolate Pecan Pie Day -
Today is National Chocolate Pecan Pie Day, which can only mean that officially everything has a national day, haha. Hey, I'm not complaining, what better reason is there to indulge in some yummy pie than on its nation day. So, in honor of Nation Chocolate Pecan Pie Day I am re-sharing my chocolate pecan pie recipe from for way back in 2014. Enjoy!
National Chocolate Pecan Pie Day -

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 the dough, then cover with pecans. 
You can use either whole pecans or break them up by hand. Lastly ,pour your wet mixture over pecans and chocolate.

Cover pie with tinfoil and cook for 20 minutes, remove tin foil 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!
