Chocolate Pecan Pie

I've never been a big fan of pecan pie, but I LOVE nuts of any kind. This pie, is not to sweet, and it is not an overload of nuts... Sort of, well, just right.


Chocolate Pecan Pie

1/2 cup margarine, melted
1 cup light corn syrup
1 cup white sugar
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
powder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
4 eggs
1 cup chopped pecans
1 recipe pastry for a 9 inch
single crust pie
DIRECTIONS:
1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
2. In a heavy saucepan combine melted margarine, corn syrup, white sugar and cocoa. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until sugar dissolves. Add vanilla, salt and eggs, stirring well. Stir in 1/2 cup pecans. Mix well.
