I didn't grow up eating pecan pie, but it is now one of my personal favorites. And when you combine the flavor of chocolate with pecan pie, it's even better. This recipe comes from my friend Andy.
2 cups sugar
2 cups light corn syrup
3 teaspoons vanilla
1 cup butter, melted
About 4 1/2 cups pecans
About 1 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
3 8-inch pie shells
Beat together eggs, sugar, corn syrup, and vanilla. Add butter and mix well. Stir in pecans. Sprinkle pie shells with chips until bottom of the shells is covered. Add half of pecan mixture, more chocolate chips, then rest of pecan mixture. Bake at 350 degrees for 50 to 55 minutes. Makes three 8-inch pies.
