CHOCOLATE PECAN PIE

Pecan pie is a beloved Southern dessert and a Thanksgiving fave (no offense, pumpkin!), but we found a way to make it even better — add chocolate, of course. To make this pie, you’ll need semisweet chocolate, eggs, corn syrup, sugar, vanilla extract, salt, pecans, and the pie crust. The result is ooey-gooey and utterly irresistible. Why not start with dessert? Watch and learn how to make this ooey-gooey chocolate pecan pie! The pie filling puffs up during baking but settles as it cools.
