Easier than Paula Deen's Chocolate Pecan Pie

On Hulu, there are short cooking videos on how to make various dishes and hosted by several famous tv chefs. I watched one with Paula Deen and I thought at some point I should try to make the chocolate pecan pie she and her guest host were raving about it. Better I never did because a) they never showed a list of the ingredients and b) it didn't look that great.

Here's a recipe that is easier than her's that takes very little time and effort especially if you use a ready made pie crust. My only issue with this recipe is that it states to bake it for 35 minutes but that is not enough time. I baked it for 40 and it was still doughy and had to put it back in for additional time. So keep in eye on this pie. If it's not done at 35 minutes then crank the heat on the oven or add some time.

1/cup butter
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1 cup sugar
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1/2 cup shredded coconut
1 8 inch unbaked pie shell

  1. In a saucepan over medium heat, melt butter and chocolate chips until mixture is smooth.
  2. Remove from heat. 
  3. Add eggs, pecans, sugar and coconut. Stir until well blended. Pour into pie shell.
  4. Bake at 350. (See my comments above about time.)

This is the best dessert I have ever had...and I don't even know why it was so freaking good. I guess it was just the awesome combination of deliciousness.
