Ingredients

4 oz
bittersweet chocolate
4 oz
semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 c
butter, unsalted
4 large
eggs
1 c
granulated sugar
1/4 c
light corn syrup
1/2 tsp
salt
1 c
chopped pecans
1
deep-dish, store-bought, chocolate cookie wafer crust
1 c
heavy cream
1/4 c
confectioners' sugar
1/4 tsp
vanilla extract
optional, shaved chocolate for garnish
optional, finely chopped pecans for garnish

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
2
Melt the chocolate and the butter in a double boiler. Stir continuously until combined and smooth.
3
With an electric mixer, beat the eggs, sugar, corn syrup and salt on medium-high speed until it lightens and doubles in volume, appx 2-3 minutes.
4
Mix in the melted chocolate mixture and fold in the pecans. Pour into the cocolate wafer crust and bake until the filling is just set, about 35-40 minutes.
5
Remove from the oven and let cool. The pie will fall slightly. Once cool, refigerate until well chilled, roughly 1-1 1/2 hours.
6
In a medium bowl, add the heavy cream, sugar and vanilla extract and beat until soft peaks form. Top the chilled pie with the whipped cream, making a nice mound on top of the pie. Garnish with shaved chocolate and finely chopped peacans if desired.
