A Bit Of Chocolate....
This is a test...I'm here to place temptation in front of you. You don't have to follow through. You can just read the recipe and move on...or. It's up to you. Give up something else, you won't be sorry. Easiest pie ever...you don't even have to make a crust. What?? And you still hesitate? Enjoy!
3/4 cup butter/or margarine
3 (1 oz.) unsweetened chocolate squares
1 1/2 cups sugar
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp. vanilla extract
3/4 cup chopped pecans, toasted and divided
Toppings: vanilla ice cream, chocolate fudge sauce, pecans
Cook butter and chocolate in a small saucepan over low heat, stirring often until melted.
Beat eggs at medium speed with mixer for 5 minutes. Gradually add sugar, beating until blended. Gradually add chocolate mixture, flour, and vanilla, beat until blended. Stir in 1/2 cup pecans.
Pour mixture into a lightly greased 9 inch pieplate.
Bake at 350 deg. for 35 to 40 minutes or until center is firm. If you wish, top each serving with vanilla ice cream, chocolate fudge sauce, sprinkle with remaining chopped pecans.
