    Pecan pies are an American dessert that deserves to be better known! This chocolate version is deliciously gooey and chocolatey.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 8 

    • 90g butter
    • 60g plain chocolate
    • 3 eggs
    • 1/2 cup (125g) caster sugar
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 2/3 cup corn syrup (or golden syrup)
    • 1 1/4 cups pecan halves
    • 1 (23cm) shortcrust pastry tart shell

    Directions
    Preparation:30min  ›  Cook:50min  ›  Ready in:1hour20min 

    1. Preheat oven to 190 degrees C.
    2. Heat butter and chocolate over low heat, stirring constantly, until chocolate is melted; cool slightly.
    3. With electric hand mixer, beat eggs, sugar, salt, chocolate mixture and golden syrup together.
    4. Stir in pecans and pour mixture into the pastry-lined pie dish. Trim excess pastry hanging from the edges, and pinch around the perimeter of the pie dish.
    5. Bake in preheated oven for 40 to 50 minutes or until set. Cool slightly. Serve warm or refrigerate and serve with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.

    I had made a chocloate pecan pie several years ago. I'd lost the recipe, but remembered how good it was. This recipe was just what I was looking for. Good chocolate flavour and very easy to make (even for those who don't normally make pies!) The only suggestion I have is to cover the pie with foil halfway through the baking time so the pastry doesn't burn. - 21 Jul 2008

    Great pie!!! Not too sweet, and really easy to make! I covered the edges of the crust for the first 25 minutes. - 21 Jul 2008
