This Chocolate Pecan Pie recipe has all the flavor of classic pecan pie, but with the delicious addition of dark chocolate!

Take your Thanksgiving Pecan Pie up a notch with this twist on a classic. 

Dark Chocolate Pecan Pie is a family favorite.

Since it has cooled off and the leaves have finally changed colors, I have been craving pie and dreaming up all of the Thanksgiving desserts I want to make this year.

From Apple Streusel Pie to Pumpkin Cheesecake Pie, Buckeye Peanut Butter Balls to Peppermint Snowball Cookies and Reindeer Peanut Blossom Cookies, I’m ready for it all this year.

There’s nothing like a few days of fun holiday baking to jump-start your holiday mood.

Chocolate Pecan Pie Recipe

To make this pie, first you’ll make your pie crust and pre-bake it. I’m partial to an all-butter pie crust as illustrated below, or this Cheater Oil Pie Crust when I’m in a hurry, but you can certainly use a store-bought crust to keep it even simpler.

To pre-bake the crust, pop it in the oven with some pie weights, dry beans, or rice for 20 minutes. Take it out and let it cool completely.

Chocolate Pecan Pie needs to be on everyone's dessert table this year!

Fill the cooled crust with pecans and dark chocolate chips. Whisk together the brown sugar, eggs, corn syrup, melted butter, and chocolate sauce. (Homemade or store-bought chocolate sauces will work nicely in this recipe.)

Pour the wet ingredients over the pecans and chocolate chips in the pie and bake until the pie is no longer jiggly.

Cool the pie completely before slicing. Drizzle with additional chocolate sauce before serving.

Just hand me a fork! I love this chocolate pecan pie so much.

Ingredients 

For the Crust

  • 1 ¼ cups all-purpose flour

For the Pie

  • 1 1/2 cups pecans
  • 1/3 cup semi-sweet or dark chocolate chips
  • 6 tablespoons butter melted
  • ¾ cup dark corn syrup

  • Stir together the pecans and chocolate chips and place them in the fully cooled crust. Whisk together the melted butter, corn syrup, eggs, chocolate sauce, brown sugar and salt. Pour over pecans and chocolate chips in the crust.
  • Bake in an oven preheated to 350°F for 30-40 minutes or until the center is no longer jiggly. Let cool before slicing and serving. Drizzle with additional chocolate sauce before serving.
