Ingredients

  • Butter- Use unsalted butter to control the amount of salt in the recipe.
  • Salt- The salt will help bring out the flavors in the pie.
  • Eggs- Use eggs that are at room temperature.
  • Light corn syrup- This will be an added sweetener to the recipe.
  • Pecan- You will need them to be chopped.
  • Coconut– You will need the shredded sweetened coconut.
  • Chocolate chips– Semi-sweet chocolate chips work the best for this recipe.
  • Pie crust- You can get a ready-made crust or make your own homemade pie crust.

How to Make a Chocolate Pecan Pie

Set the oven to 350 degrees and put the premade crust onto a sheet.

Add the eggs into a medium bowl and whisk until combine.

Add the butter, salt, and corn syrup into a medium saucepan and combine.

Whisk until melted and fully incorporated.

Take off the stove and let cool for about 5 minutes.

Slowly add in the corn syrup mixture into the egg mixture and stir regularly until combined.

Add in the chopped pecans, 1/2 c of chocolate chips, and coconut and fold to combine.

Add the other 1/2 c of chocolate chips into the pie crust and evenly spread.

Dump the filling over top of the chocolate chips in the pie crust.

Put into the oven for 35-45 minutes.

Let the pie cool and add fresh whipped cream and more mini chocolate chips on top.

Serve and enjoy!

What is the Difference Between Regular Chocolate and German Chocolate?

So, using German chocolate is a lot tastier for this Chocolate pie. Regular chocolate is a bit richer than German chocolate. German chocolate has a milder taste and lighter color compared to regular chocolate.

What Crust Should I Use With This Pie?

The best crust to use for this German chocolate pie is the one used in the recipe. It is a ready-made pie for a quicker and simpler process. If you have a favorite homemade pie crust recipe, you can definitely use that instead.
