I’ve loved pecan pie for years, but I never tried to make it with chocolate. Once I did, I’m not sure if I’ll ever go back to the original. It is gloriously rich so just a sliver of a piece is all you need, but I’ll tell ya this pie is crazy delicious! The perfect match of pecans and chocolate all wrapped up in a silky baked custardy filling and flaky all-butter crust.

here’s what you’ll need to make chocolate pecan pie

ingredients measured out and in bowls on granite countertop.
  • Light corn syrup — you can substitute with dark corn syrup or Lyle’s golden syrup.
  • Semi-sweet chocolate chips — bittersweet would also work. I wouldn’t recommend milk chocolate as it would be too sweet.
  • Pecan halves — I like the way the halves float to the top and form a layer of crunchy goodness. If you can only get your hands on pecan pieces, those are perfectly fine to use.

the easiest pie ever to make!

  1. Beat the eggs in a medium bowl and add the sugar, corn syrup, butter, and vanilla. Mix well. Dump in the pecans and stir to combine.
  2. Add the chocolate chips to the bottom of the pie crust.
  3. Pour the pecan filling over the chocolate chips.
  4. Bake for 5 minutes at 400 degrees F and an additional 45-50 minutes at 350 degrees F, checking halfway through and covering the crust if it’s getting dark. Pie is done when the center is no longer jiggly.
