You will need an unbaked 9" pie crust. As I said before, my easy go to crusts are the frozen ones made by Marie Callendar....my good friend! :-)
4 ounces bittersweet (not unsweetened) or semisweet chocolate, chopped
2 tablespoons (1/4 stick) unsalted butter
1/2 cup dark brown sugar (firmly packed)
3 large eggs
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup light corn syrup
1 1/2 cups pecan pieces or halves, lightly toasted
Stir chocolate and butter in heavy small saucepan over low heat until melted. Cool slightly.
Whisk brown sugar, eggs and salt in large bowl to blend. Whisk in corn syrup and chocolate mixture. Sprinkle pecans over unbaked crust. Pour filling over pecans. Bake until crust is golden and filling is puffed, about 55 minutes.
Cool pie completely on rack. Serve with a dollop of whipped cream if you desire. It's fun to add chocolate shavings on top of the whipped cream too.
