  2. Melt butter in medium saucepan over low heat; add sugar and cocoa, stirring until well blended. Remove from heat; set aside.
  3. Beat eggs slightly in medium bowl. Stir in corn syrup and salt. Add cocoa mixture; blend well. Stir in chopped pecans. Pour into unbaked pie crust.

Originally I wrote my review based on the fact that I had never tried pecan pie before and so I didn't know what to compare it to so I gave this recipe the benefit of the doubt. However, after trying pecan pie for the first time not to long ago I realize now that this does not compare. I wouldn't make this again.

I've made lots of versions of Chocolate Pecan Pie. This one is the one I use when I know it's got to be good. Tastes like an undercooked brownie in a pie shell... delicious!!!
