Baby Shower Chocolate Pecan Pie

This Chocolate Pecan Pie came out rich and silky, despite it being haphazardly thrown together at the last minute. It was a great sweet end to the menu for a baby shower I attended this past weekend. Here's the recipe:

Chocolate Pecan Pie

9" bottom crust (unbaked, pricked all over with a fork, and frozen 10 minutes)
3/4 stick unsalted butter
1 c. dark brown sugar
2/3 c. syrup mixture (1/2 c. brown rice syrup, the remainder an equal mix of maple syrup & honey)
1/4 t. salt
3 large eggs
2 c. pecan halves
1 c. chocolate chips

Melt butter in a heavy saucepan over medium heat. Whisk in brown sugar until smooth. Remove from heat. Whisk in salt and syrup mixture. Stir in chocolate chips. Put aside. Lightly beat eggs in a large bowl. Whisk syrup mixture into eggs. Pour pecans into pie shell. Top with liquid syrup-egg mix. Bake at 350F for 43 minutes.

Current Pie Tally: 119
