Chocolate Pecan Pie

For those of you who don't yet know, I have a real weakness for pecans.  It's one of the reasons I love Thanksgiving, actually.  Most people look forward to the pumpkin pie, but for me it's pecan pie that makes my heart beat a little faster.  Combined with some chocolate, it's the stuff of dreams!  <<sigh>>

Here is another recipe from Susan that sounds absolutely amazing.  Minus the crust, it almost sounds like a Derby Pie, for those of you who are from this neck of the woods.  Hope you enjoy!

Chocolate Pecan Pie

 1/2 (15 oz) pkg refrigerated piecrusts
4 eggs
1 cup light corn syrup
6 TBSP butter or margarine (melted)
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup light brown sugar (packed)
1 TBSP vanilla
1 cup coarsely chopped pecans
1 cup (6oz) semisweet chocolate chips
hot fudge topping (warmed)
frozen whipped topping
chopped chocolate

Fit pie crust into a 9 in deep pie plate according to pkg directions. Fold edges under and crimp. Whisk together egss and next 5 ingredients until mixture is smooth; stir in pecans and chocolate chips. Pour into piecrust. Bake on lowest oven rack at 350 degrees for one hour or until set. Drizzle each serving with hot fudge topping, dollop with whipped topping and sprinkle with chopped chocoalte. Serves 8.......♥
