Chocolate Pecan Pie
Rich chocolate pecan pie made with a brown sugar filling, crunchy pecans, rich chocolate, all in a homemade buttery, flaky pie crust.
We are talking all about pies. This is the pinnacle of pie season and let's embrace all things pie. When I think of Thanksgiving pies, three classic pies come to mind -- pumpkin, apple, and pecan. They are a must on our Thanksgiving table!
I have shared my classic old-fashioned pecan pie recipe already so it was time to elevate it just a little. This Chocolate Pecan Pie is a pecan pie made even better. Rich chocolate chips pair so perfectly with the crunchy pecans and sweet brown sugar filling all in a buttery, flay pie crust.
This is a Southern classic pecan pie studded with semi-sweet chocolate chips. It has all of the components of a perfect pecan pie -- butter, brown sugar, Karo syrup, eggs, vanilla, pecans, and chocolate in a homemade buttery crust. You are going to fall in love with this pie! This Chocolate Chip Pecan Pie is always a huge crowd pleaser!

How to make the Best Chocolate Pecan Pie:
- Start by melting butter, brown sugar, and Karo syrup in a saucepan. You can use either light or dark Karo syrup, depending on the depth of flavor you desire. Dark Karo syrup has molasses in it so it has a stronger flavor. I call for light Karo syrup in this recipe but it is all a matter of preference.
- Let the mixture cool to room temperature (about 15 minutes) and then add eggs and vanilla and whisk well. Add the pecan halves and fold into the brown sugar filling.
- Make the homemade pie crust by mixing flour, salt, butter, and cold water/vinegar mixture. This is such an easy butter pie crust recipe and is a huge difference maker in this chocolate chip pecan pie.
- Sprinkle with semi-sweet chocolate chips or chocolate bar chunks. You can also use milk chocolate chips but I do like to use a little dark chocolate to offset the sweet brown sugar filling.
