I think it is important to maintain a healthy and active lifestyle, but I also think it’s necessary to indulge in things you love every so often 🙂 I decided to make Chocolate Pecan Pie, which I have been wanting to do for a long time. It was surprisingly really simple (granted, I did not make the crust myself). I was a little nervous for it, but got great feed back from the party!
Beat butter and sugar in a large mixer bowl until well-blended. Add eggs, one at a time. Add in corn syrup, vanilla and salt. This may look a little curdled. Mix in one cup of pecans and all the chocolate chips. (After my results, I recommend melting the chips before!) Lay the other cup of pecans in the pie crust, and lay the mixture over it.
Bake at 325 degrees for 55-60 minutes until outer edges are set and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out with just melted chocolate. The center will still be jiggly. Sprinkle powdered sugar when cooled, if desired. Enjoy!
