How To Make Chocolate Pecan Pie

Two well-loved ingredients come together to create this beautiful chocolate pecan pie. The decadent dark chocolate complements the crisp pecans.

Preparation: 15 minutes
Cooking: 50 minutes
Total: 1 hour 5 minutes



  • 2cupspecans
  • 6oz70% chocolate,roughly chopped into pieces (or semisweet chocolate)
  • ½cupunsalted butter
  • 2tbspcocoa powder,unsweetened
  • ¾cupgolden syrup,maple syrup, rice syrup or light corn syrup
  • ¾cuplight brown sugar,packed
  • 2tbspall purpose flour
  • 2tbspbourbon,optional
  • 1tbsppure vanilla extract
  • ¾tspsalt
  • 4largeeggs,whisked
  • 9inchpie crust,or pie shell


  1. Preheat oven 350 degrees F with rack on lowest position in oven. Prepare pie crust. If using uncooked pie crust, prick the base a few times with a fork to prevent air bubbles before pouring in the filling.

  2. When oven is hot, toast pecans on a baking sheet for 10 minutes. Roughly chop half of the toasted pecans. Reserve the other half for decorating the top of the pie.

  3. Fill a small pot ⅓ of the way with water and bring to a boil over medium-high heat.

  4. Reduce heat to low and place a heat-proof bowl on the pot. Fill the bowl with the chocolate and stir continuously until the chocolate is melted.

  5. Add the butter to the chocolate, stirring well to combine until butter is melted. Mix in the cocoa powder until completely dissolved.

  6. Take the bowl off the heat. Whisk in syrup, sugar, flour, bourbon, vanilla and salt.

  7. Add the eggs and whisk well to combine. Fold in chopped pecans. Pour into prepared pie shell and top with remaining pecans.

  8. Bake for 50 to 55 minutes or until centre is just set to the touch but still a little jiggly underneath.

  9. The pie will be puffed up as soon as it comes out of the oven, but it will deflate and flatten as it cools down. Let cool on a wire rack for about 4 hours and serve warm, or refrigerate to chill overnight.
