DIRECTIONS

  • Heat oven to 350°F In small bowl, combine sugar, corn syrup,butter, salt and eggs; beat 1 minute at medium speed.
  • Stir in pecans.
  • Pour into pie crust.
  • Bake 350°F for 40 to 55 minutes or until center of pie is puffed and golden brown.
  • (I fold a 3" band of aluminum foil and place loosely around edge of crust, folding over top to keep edges from browning too quickly).
  • Cool 1 hour.
  • While pecan layer is cooling, combile all chocolate filling ingredients in a food processor or blender.
  • Process for about 1 minute or until smooth.
  • Refrigerate about 1 1/2 hours until mixture is slightly thickened, but not set.
  • You want to be able to pour it.
  • Stir gently and pour over cooled pecan layer.
  • Refrigerate until firm, about 1 hour.
  • In small bowl, beat topping ingredients until stiff peaks form.
  • Spoon or pipe over filling (it looks especially pretty piped just around outer edge).
  • Garnish with chocolate curls.
  • Store in refrigerator.
