  • Homemade Pie Crust
  • 2 cups pecans shelled
  • ¾ cup chocolate chips semi-sweet or dark
  • ¾ cup pure maple syrup
  • ¾ cup brown sugar dark
  • 3 large eggs
  • 5 Tbsp. butter melted and cooled
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • ¾ tsp. cinnamon


  • Whipped cream
  • Additional chocolate chips


  1. Follow the directions for my homemade pie crust and stop after par-baking for 10-15 minutes.
  2. Add the pecans to the bottom of the par-baked pie crust in a single layer and sprinkle the chocolate chips over the pecans.
  3. Whisk together the maple syrup, brown sugar, eggs, melted butter, vanilla, salt, and cinnamon in a large bowl and then pour it evenly over the nuts and chips.
  4. Bake the pie at 350 for 45-50 minutes, or until the middle no longer jiggles. If the edges of the pie crust are beginning to brown, place a pie crust shield on top after 20-30 minutes. Additionally, if the top is browning too quickly, carefully place a piece of aluminum foil over the top to prevent it from burning.
  5. Place the baked pie on a wire rack to cool completely before serving. The filling will continue to set, so it is important that you do not cut into it too soon.
  6. Serve pie with a dollop of whipped cream and additional chocolate shavings or chocolate chips. Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

  • To Store: The pie will keep for up to 2 hours at room temperature or up to 4-5 days in the refrigerator.
