Bourbon Street Chocolate Pecan Pie

Serves 6-8


1 cup light corn syrup
3 eggs
1/3 cup of butter, melted
1 cup brown sugar
1 dash vanilla
1 pinch salt
2 cups pecans, broken
1 pie shell., uncooked
5 ounces of milk chocolate


Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

Combine the corn syrup, eggs and melted butter and whisk briskly. Add the brown sugar and mix well. Add the vanilla, salt and pecans. Incorporate. Pour the mixture into the pie shell and drop in the chocolate pieces. Wrap the edge of the pie with foil to help keep the crust from over browning and drying out. Place the pie on a small sheet pan and put it into the hot oven for about one hour, until the center is set and the pie is golden brown.

Best served at room temperature or warmed slightly in the microwave oven. And a little French Vanilla Ice Cream on the side won't kill you any faster!
