Yes. It is terrible for you. I will not apologize for that.
It is for Thanksgiving. It is for love.
Mrs. Matthew's Chocolate Pecan Pie
2 squares unsweetened chocolate (sometimes I go crazy and use 3 squares)
3 Tbs. butter
1 C. light corn syrup
3/4 C sugar
3 eggs, slightly beaten
1 Tsp. vanilla
1 C. coarsely chopped pecans
Unbaked 9" pie shell
1/2 C. cream, whipped with sugar to taste
Melt chocolate and butter over boiling water. Boil syrup and sugar together, 2 minutes.
Add chocolate/butter mixture. Pour slowly over eggs, stirring constantly. Add vanilla and nuts. Turn into pie shell. Bake at 350 degrees for 45-50 minutes.
Top with whipped cream.
Eat a piece. Go take a nap. You will need it.
