How to Make Chocolate Chip Pecan Pie

As I said, this pie is super easy to make. Whisk together eggs, sugar, corn syrup, vanilla, and melted butter. Stir in chopped pecans and chocolate chips. Pour the mixture into a pie crust and bake. Let the pie cool and serve.

  • I used light Karo Syrup in this pie. You can use dark corn syrup if you prefer.
  • I used a frozen deep-dish pie crust. There is no need to thaw the crust before baking.
  • Feel free to make your own homemade pie crust for this recipe.
  • If the pie is getting too brown, cover it with foil and continue baking until set.
  • The pie will keep in an air-tight container in the refrigerator for about 4 days.
  • Can you freeze pecan pie? Yes! Cool the pie completely and wrap the pie tightly with aluminum foil or plastic freezer wrap, or place in a heavy-duty freezer bag. The pie will keep 1 to 2 months in the freezer.

Easy Make-Ahead Holiday Dessert

  1. Oh my stars! This pie was the hit of Thanksgiving!

    I’ve never made a pecan pie but my son asked for one and this looked easy enough. It definitely is easy but the taste is wonderful! Even my pumpkin pie fanatic son had 2 slices of this!

    I did cover it with a bit of foil towards the end. But other than that- followed this and was extremely happy with the results. We have a new holiday pie!! Thank you.

  2. Could you use a graham cracker or nut based ready made crust from the baking aisle to make this? Would the cooking time/temp need to be altered in any way? Thanks!!!

    1. I am sure that would work fine. You will just have to experiment with the cooking time. I’m not sure if all of the filling will fit in the store-bought crusts. I think they are smaller. If so, it wouldn’t take as long to cook.
