Total Time

Adapted from "Cooking in the New South." This is a great dessert for people who really love chocolate. It is not as sweet as most pecan pies. Serve with sweetened whipped cream on top. Yum!


  1. Preheat oven to 425.
  2. Melt chocolate squares in the microwave.
  3. Beat melted chocolate with brown sugar until thoroughly mixed.
  4. Add eggs, one at a time.
  5. Add corn syrup, bourbon, molasses, and salt.
  6. Check to see that there are no lumps--this mixture is sticky!
  7. Fold in pecan halves with a spatula.
  8. Pour into the pie shell and bake for ten minutes at 425. Lower oven temperature to 325 and back for about 30 minutes more, or until a knife comes out clean from the center.
