Cook butter and chocolate in a small saucepan over low heat, stirring often until melted.
Beat eggs at medium speed with an electric mixer 5 minutes. Gradually add sugar, beating until blended. Gradually add chocolate mixture, flour, and vanilla, beating until blended. Stir in 1/2 cup pecans.
Pour mixture into a lightly greased 9-inch pieplate.
Bake at 350° for 35 to 40 minutes or until center is firm. Cool. Top each serving with vanilla ice cream and chocolate syrup; sprinkle with remaining chopped pecans.
You could put this in a square baking dish and it would be brownies. They are good and I served them with ice cream. Thought the chocolate syrup was too much. Next time will put all the pecans in the mix. A definite repeat.
After reading reviews, I must have done something very wrong. I followed the directions exactly as printed and my pie came our dry and hard and almost tasteless. Please someone tell me what I did wrong. I'm puzzled because it came out so different from other reviews. Help!!
This is SO rich and fudgy!! My husband and I loved it!! And, it is very easy to make! This is a definite keeper! TIP: I rather a smooth texture in the middle and nuts on top, so I poured the mix into the pie plate and then sprinkled pecans on top before baking.
