The Best Chocolate Pecan Pie with Bonus Coffee Topping | The Cupboard Drawer Recipe Book

Updated on October 26, 2010

Pecan Pies have always been a fall favorite of mine. Thanksgiving, Christmas, or New Year’s Day just don’t seem complete without one of these pies on the dessert table.  So straight from the Cupboard Drawer Recipe Book, here is one of my Favorites just in time for the coming Fall and Holiday Season. The Bonus Coffee Topping is a nice alternative adult style topping that will enhance that after dinner cup o joe.  The coconut option is my personal addition as I have always liked to experiment in the kitchen and I think it really enhances the texture and flavor.  However you choose to do it, Do Enjoy!


1 4oz Pkg Sweet Chocolate

1 Tbsp Butter

1/3 Cup Granulated Sugar

1 Cup Light Corn Syrup

3 Eggs

1 Tsp Vanilla

1 Cup Pecans Coarsely Chopped

1 unbaked 9 in Pie Shell

Coffee Topping (IF desired)

Option – ¼ - ½ Cup Shredded Coconut

Preheat Oven to 375 F (190 C)

1.       In a mixing bowl, slightly beat the eggs; set aside.

2.       In a small saucepan over very low heat, melt the chocolate and butter, stirring constantly. Remove from heat.

3.       In a separate saucepan over high heat, bring the sugar and corn syrup to a boil, stirring constantly until the sugar is dissolved. Reduce heat and boil gently for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and stir in the chocolate mixture

4.       Pour slowly over eggs, stirring constantly. Stir in the Vanilla and Pecans. . OPTION – add coconut to desired texture or taste, Pour mix into pie shell

5.       Bake in the pre-heated 375 F oven for 45-50 minutes or until filling is completely ‘Puffed” across the top. Allow to cool.

6.       Garnish with Coffee Topping if Desired.

Coffee Topping

      Big John - The recipe is different from whatI am used to, but it reads like it will be a beauty. Gotta try that coffee topping, maybe with a shot of Jack Daniel added into it. Thanks.
