Extra Rich Chocolate Pecan Pie
Chocolate chips and creamy evaporated milk change the tone and texture of this luscious southern classic. You'd better make two while you're at it!

2/3 cup evaporated milk
2 tablespoons butter
1 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup chopped pecans
1 (9-inch) unbaked pie crust
- Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C).
- Combine chocolate chips, evaporated milk and butter in a small saucepan. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until smooth and creamy. Remove from heat and set aside.
