Updated April 27, 2021

Ingredients

  • 1 crust from 1 box (14.1 oz) refrigerated Pillsbury™ Pie Crusts (2 Count)
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup dark corn syrup
  • 3 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt, if desired
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 1 cup hot milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 1/3 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup whipping (heavy) cream
  • 2 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla
  • Chocolate curls, if desired

Steps

  • 1
    Prepare pie crust as directed on package for one-crust filled pie using 9-inch pie plate. Heat oven to 350°. Beat granulated sugar, corn syrup, butter, salt and eggs in small bowl with electric mixer on medium speed 1 minute. Stir in pecans. Pour into pie crust in pie plate. Bake 35 to 45 minutes or until center of pie is puffed and golden brown. Cool 1 hour.
  • 2
    While filled crust is cooling, place hot milk, 1/4 teaspoon vanilla and the chocolate chips in blender or food processor; cover and blend on medium speed about 1 minute or until smooth. Refrigerate about 1 hour 30 minutes or until mixture is slightly thickened but not set. Gently stir; pour over cooled filling in pie crust. Refrigerate about 1 hour or until firm.
  • 3
    Beat whipping cream, powdered sugar and 1/4 teaspoon vanilla in chilled small bowl on high speed until stiff peaks form. Spoon or pipe over filling. Garnish with chocolate curls. Store in refrigerator.

  • For quick chocolate curls, pull a vegetable peeler along a chunky bar of milk chocolate. Milk chocolate is softer than semi-sweet or bittersweet chocolate. Lift the curls onto the dessert with a toothpick.
  • Make this pie early in the day so it has time to set up, plus you'll eliminate last-minute preparation. The chocolate curls can also be made ahead and refrigerated in a single layer in a small container.
  • Dark corn syrup has a caramel flavor and color, which gives it a darker color and stronger flavor. It works well with the chocolate in this pie.
