This chocolate-lovers’ variation on classic pecan pie is extra rich, so rich, in fact, that you will want to cut smaller slices than usual. Serve with something to wash it down with.

4 eggs, beaten
1 c light corn syrup
1 c sugar
2 Tbsp butter or Margarine, melted
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 c cocoa
1 1/2 c pecan halves

In a large bowl, stir together eggs, corn syrup, sugar, butter or margarine, vanilla and cocoa. Stir in pecans.
