Recipe originally from Nathalie Dupree's Comfortable Entertaining. This is a variation of a classic pecan pie recipe with the addition of chocolate. It is very easy to assemble, but it takes 45 to 50 minutes to bake.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 ounces semisweet chocolate
  • 1 unbaked 9 inch pie shell, made from basic pie pastry
  • 3 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup light corn syrup
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted and allowed to cool
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 cups broken walnuts
  • garnish whipped cream (optional)


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. Melt the chocolate in the microwave or in a heavy pot on low heat.
  3. Pour it evenly into the unbaked pie shell.
  4. In a large bowl, mix the eggs, corn syrup, sugar, butter, and vanilla well.
  5. Stir in the walnuts.
  6. Pour the mixture into the chocolate-lined pie shell and bake until the filling is set, 45 to 50 minutes.
  7. Remove to a rack and let cool.
  8. The pie may be made ahead several days, or frozen for up to 3 months.
  9. Serve with whipped cream if desired.

This was so easy to make, and the end result was delicious. I like pecan pie, but sometimes find it cloyingly sweet. I think the chocolate helped to tame the sweetness. I served this with cool whip. This would be a wonderful twist on the classic pecan pie for a holiday meal!

This was incredibly good - the filling was perfect. When it baked up, the chocolate formed a layer directly underneath the walnuts. Next time I will use less (maybe even half as much) chocolate, but it was a hit.
