I would have to say Chocolate Pecan Pie is in the top 3 of my favorite pies. This recipe is to die for. Many say it is rich and you only need a tiny sliver. I say it is perfect and to have a regular slice with plenty of homemade whipped cream. It is rich, it is indulgent, it is heavenly and if you are lucky enough to get a slice where the filling has caramelized to the point of almost turning hard right near the crust, just below a pecan that has caused a small gap so the heat sneaks through and does it's magic, then you are the luckiest person at the table.

How to Make Chocolate Pecan Pie w/ homemade whipped cream

Step-by-Step

  • 1Preheat oven to 350°.
  • 2While oven preheats, melt butter in a small sauce pan on the stove or in the microwave. While butter is melting, add beaten eggs to a medium sized bowl.
  • 3Stir in brown sugar, flour, vanilla and corn syrup until combined. Add butter when just melted.
  • 4Mix in pecans and chocolate chips. Stir all together. Pour mixture into unbaked pie shell.
  • 5Place a sheet tray or a piece of foil on bottom rack below where the pie will sit to bake. Place pie on top rack in the center of the oven and bake for 50-60 minutes.
  • 6Shield your pie crust for first 30 minutes or so of baking OR shield your pie crust for at least the second half of baking to avoid crust over browning.
  • 7Let pie cool AT LEAST an hour before cutting. When ready to eat, serve with a HUGE dollop of homemade whipped cream. ENJOY!
  • 8~~HOMEMADE WHIPPED CREAM~~

    Place a metal or glass bowl in the freezer at least 15 minutes prior to making.

    With a mixer, beat cream until it begins to thicken. Add powdered sugar. Beat until stiff peaks form. Fold in vanilla.

    ***TIP*** Using powder sugar instead of regular sugar will keep your cream from separating.
