An updated version of the classic pecan pie. The slightly spicy flavor of the bourbon is wonderfully complimented by the chocolate.

1 cup sugar
1 cup light corn syrup
1/2 cup butter
4 eggs
1/4 cup J Daniels Kentucky bourbon
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
2 cups pecan pieces
19″ unbaked pie shell

Preheat oven to 325°

Combine sugar, corn syrup and butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Stir constantly heating until the sugar is dissolved. Cool slightly.

Beat eggs, bourbon, vanilla and salt in a large bowl; slowly add the cooled sugar mixture, beating well with a wire whisk.

Gently stir in chocolate chips and pecans. Pour into pie shell.

Bake until set; 50 – 60 minutes.
