Who doesn’t love chocolate & nuts? It’s one of my favorite combo’s so I make this pie every year for Thanksgiving for 3 reasons. The name (hello, I am from Tarheel country), it’s beyond easy & it melts in your mouth! I don’t have a big sweet tooth, but this pie takes the cake.
All you need is:
- 1 C. choc chips (you can also use dark choc. chips for a healthier alternative, but lets face it…this isn’t healthy)
- 1/2 C. melted butter
- 1 C. chopped pecans (I prefer unsalted)
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 1/2 C. plain flour
- 1/2 C. white sugar
- 1/2 brown sugar
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 1 unbaked pie shell (thawed if you bought frozen)
Pour warm butter over choc. chips & stir. Blend all remaining ingredients in a separate bowl & stir into choc. chip mixture. Pour into unbaked pie shell & bake at 350 for 30-40 min.
This pie is great right out of the oven, or the next day when it’s settled & is at room temp. I almost like it better cold. Your choice!
