1 (9-inch) unbaked pie crust


1 cup light corn syrup
2/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, melted
1 tablespoon bourbon, if desired
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup pecan halves
1/2 cup real semi-sweet chocolate chips


Pecan halves, if desired
Real semi-sweet chocolate chips, melted, if desired
Land O Lakes® Heavy Whipping Cream, sweetened, whipped, if desired


Heat oven to 375°F. Place crust into 9-inch pie pan. Crimp or flute edge; set aside.

Combine corn syrup, sugar, butter, eggs, bourbon (if desired) and salt in bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until well mixed. Stir in 1 cup pecans and 1/2 cup chocolate chips.

Pour into prepared pie crust. Cover pie loosely with aluminum foil. Bake 30 minutes. Remove aluminum foil; continue baking 10-15 minutes or until filling is set. (If browning too quickly, recover with aluminum foil.) Cool; refrigerate at least 4 hours or until serving time.

Dip additional pecan halves halfway into melted chocolate chips; if desired. Place onto waxed paper-lined baking sheet; refrigerate until set. Serve pie with sweetened whipped cream and garnish with dipped pecan halves, if desired.

Recipe Comments & Reviews

mine home made is so much better1!!!!!!!
I made this for Thanksgiving dinner and it's definately a "keeper" recipe. Very delicious.
I grew up in Kentucky and this was called "Derby Pie"...the only pecan pie loaded with chocolate chips. Unfortunately, I never got the recipe from my Granny before she died. So imagine my surprise when I scrolled and saw this recipe!

It's SUPER easy to make and such a rich dessert that it needs nothing else. It totally compliments turkey and is the perfect ending to a holiday or evening with friends! Thanks for re-introducing my family and me to an old southern comfort!
I have made it with and without the chocolate chips. Both are awesome! If going with the chocolate chips I strongly recommend using the mini-chocolate chips.
This is a fantastic recipe for Chocolate pie.
One can enhance it if you wish in many ways.
I made 10 pies for a party and each one was a bit different.
I added 1 teaspoon of Espresso coffee (dried) to one and it was marvelous. Deep rich flavor. Raspberry liquor to others, Creme de mint to others. I could go on but you get the idea if you want to experiment.
This is just wonderful and very decadent.
Have a good time with the one.
