Chocolate Pecan Pie
- 10" cast iron skillet
- 1 pie crust unbaked
- 1 cup light corn syrup
- ½ cup sugar
- 3 eggs
- ¼ cup butter melted and slightly cooled
- 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1 cup toffee bits
- 2 cups pecan halves whole or coarsely chopped
- Preheat oven to 325°F.
- In a large bowl, stir corn syrup, sugar, eggs, and melted butter together until combined well.
- Stir in chocolate chips, toffee bits, and pecans. Pour into pie crust.
- Cover pie with a loose foil tent so that the crust and top don't brown too much. Bake at 325 degrees for 30 minutes.
- After 30 minutes, turn the oven down to 300 degrees, remove foil tent, and bake for another 20 minutes. Pie will still be a little jiggly but if it's too jiggly, bake an additional 10 minutes. Make sure pie does not brown too much. If it is getting too brown place the foil tent back on.
- Remove from oven and let cool on a wire rack.
- Serve chilled, room temperature, or slightly warm with a dollop of whipped cream or ice cream. It's easiest to slice the pie when chilled. You can slice the pie and then warm if desired.
