Aunt Lorene's Chocolate Pecan Pie

This recipe comes from my Amish aunt, Lorene Miller.  I love Pecan Pie but when I went to dinner at her house once and she served CHOCOLATE Pecan Pie, I had to ask for the recipe.

1 unbaked pie shell
4 eggs, slightly beaten
1 C packed brown sugar
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 C light corn syrup
1/4 C melted butter
1 tsp. vanilla
1 C chopped or halved pecans
1/2 C semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375.  In mixing bowl combine eggs, brown sugar, salt, corn syrup, melted butter and vanilla; mix well.  Fold in pecans and chocolate chips.  Pour into unbaked pie shell.  Bake 50-60 minutes, or until inserted toothpick comes out clean.

Crust Tip:  Because this pie takes a while to bake, you can use strips of foil over your pie crust edges to prevent them from getting too dark.  If you make pie a lot, however, you may want to invest in {{Pampered Chef Pie Crust Shields}}.  I have two of these and I love them.
