This spectacular pie combines the "traditional" pecan pie with a distinctive chocolate flavor. What a wonderful way to complete a special meal.


  • 1 unbaked 9-inch (4-cup volume) deep-dish pie shell*
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup light corn syrup
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter or margarine, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup pecan halves, coarsely chopped
  • 3/4 cup NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chunks


PREHEAT oven to 350° F.

COMBINE eggs, corn syrup, sugar, butter and vanilla extract in medium bowl with a wire whisk. Stir in pecans. Sprinkle chunks over bottom of crust. Pour pecan mixture into pie shell.

BAKE for 50 to 55 minutes or until knife inserted 2 inches from center comes out with little bits of filling attached. If browning too quickly, cover with foil. Cool on wire rack for 2 hours; refrigerate until serving time.

Gotta Love Chocolate Pecan Pie!

I first became aware of this pie in my Home Ec Class in high school, about 12 years ago. I have made this pie many times, and it is always a hit! For those of you who haven't made it before, it's a sure fire crowd-pleaser!

Perfect Pie When You Need One

by T. Teri , SAINT ALBANS, WV on Feb. 2009

I have made this pie more times than I can count, including my son Ben's going away Thanksgiving dinner before he left for Air Force Basic Training this year. It never fails to perform perfectly, looks beautiful, and has the perfect combination of chocolate/pecans. If you haven't tried it, you won't be disappointed!!

Lower Calorie and Still Great!

by M. Marty , Opelousas, LA on Nov. 2008

I substituted low-calorie sweetner and even used the new low-sugar corn syrup, along with an egg substitute, and the results were still great. Instead of over 500 calories a slice, it now comes out to about 300 -- much more manageable to anyone who wants a special splurge but still concerned about calories and fat. One thing I did not cut were the real Nestle chunks!

The best pecan pie ever

by J. Judy , Sapulpa, OK on Nov. 2008

This is very easy to make & my family loved it! The filling doesn't separate after it sits for awhile like the one I have been making. This will be the pecan pie I make from now on.
