Preparing The Ingredients

Crumb Crust

1/2 cup butter

1 cup flour

1 tablespoon sugar

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 cup water

Chocolate Filling

1/3 cup melted margarine

1 cup corn syrup (can be replaced with 2/3 cup honey)

2/3 cup brown sugar

2 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder

1/2 tsp salt

1 1/2 cup pecans

100 g chocolate

3 eggs

1 tablespoon flour

And Making It Happen - Starting With The Crumb Crust

Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C).

Batter and flour the round baking form.

Mash the butter with the flour, salt and sugar.

It is better to let the butter soften in advance.

Pour in the water and mix thoroughly.


Proceed braking the dough with your hands, form a round ball.

Roll the ball into a thin list.

Put the dough into the pan, even the edgings if necessary and put into refrigerator while preparing the filling.

And Continuing With The Filling

Melt together margarine and chocolate and set aside.

Let the melted mixture cool down slightly.

The chocolate and margarine should be cooled enough for the eggs not to clot, but still hot enough to be liquid.

Mix together eggs, sugar, corn syrup or honey and salt.

Add cocoa and enjoy deep chocolate color. Yummy!

Fold in the flour and mix thoroughly.

Pour melted chocolate and margarine into the eggs mixture and whisk gently.

Mmmmm! It looks like another gorgeous chocolate dream! :)

Take the form with the crumb crust from refrigerator and put 1/2 of pecans.

Cover with the chocolate mixture.

And decorate with the rest of pecans.

Ready for the oven!

Bake for 30-40 minutes until ready. You will see it looking at the pie.

And here we go!
