Ingredients

  • 1 9-inch single pie crust, blind-baked per package directions
  • 1 cup 6 ounces semisweet chocolate chips, Ghirardelli work well
  • 4 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ¾ cup dark brown sugar packed
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • ¾ teaspoon table salt
  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • cups Honey Roasted Pecans or toasted chopped pecans

Instructions

  • Heat oven to 350°F and have a single pie crust, blind-baked and cooled completely.
  • Melt 2/3 cup of the chocolate chips and butter in a microwave-safe bowl and heat at 50% power, stirring often, about 90 seconds or until the chocolate is almost melted.
  • Add the oil and cocoa and whisk until smooth.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together sugar, eggs, vanilla and salt until creamy and smooth.
  • Add the chocolate mixture and whisk until incorporated.
  • Add the flour and the remaining 1/3 cup of chocolate chips. Stir just until no dry flour remains.
  • Spread the pecans over the bottom of the pie crust and pour the batter evenly over the pecans. Use a rubber spatula to spread out the batter, if necessary.
  • Bake at 325°F, 30-35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out with just a thin coating of batter attached.
  • Transfer pie to a cooling rack and cool 1-2 hours, until just warm.
  • Serve with a scoop of ice cream and a drizzle of chocolate syrup.
  • Enjoy!

Notes

Note: To reheat the pie, place it in a 300°F oven, 10-15 minutes, or until warm throughout.
Note: Be sure the pecans are toasted so they don’t get soggy, or do as I do and buy toasted/roasted pecans or Honey Roasted Pecans.
