Chocolate Pecan Pie

If you like pecan pie and you like chocolate, this is the perfect marriage of the two. I LOVE this pie and make it every Thanksgiving and/or Christmas.

Ingredients: 1 pie crust
1 cup light corn syrup
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 butter or margarine, melted
1 tsp. vanilla
3 eggs
6 oz. package (1 cup) semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 1/2 cups pecan halves

Prepare pie crust according to package directions (or make your own). Heat oven to 325 degrees.

In large bowl, combine corn syrup, sugar, margarine, vanilla, and eggs; beat well. Stir in chocolate chips and pecans. Spread evenly in pie crust. Bake at 325 degrees for 55-65 minutes or until deep golden brown and filling is set. Cover edge of pie crust with strip of foil during last 15-20 minutes of baking to prevent excessive browning. (I sometimes put the foil on before putting it into the oven and then take it off toward the end so the crust can get a little brown). Cool completely. Serve with whipped cream.
