  • 1/3 cup (75 mL) butter or margarine

    In large bowl, beat corn syrup, sugar, butter, vanilla, salt and eggs with electric mixer on medium speed until well blended. Stir in chocolate chips and pecans. Spread evenly in crust-lined pan. Cover edge with foil strip to prevent excess browning; remove foil last 5 minutes of baking.
  • 3
    Bake 45 to 55 minutes or until deep golden brown and filling is set. Cool completely, about 1 hour.
  • 4
    Garnish with whipped cream if desired. Store in refrigerator.

  • Special Touch: Garnish with chocolate leaves. To make chocolate leaves, wash and dry 8 fresh nonpoisonous leaves such as lemon and rose or use pliable plastic leaves. In small saucepan, melt 1/4 cup (50 mL) semi-sweet chocolate chips and 1/2 tsp (2 mL) oil over low heat, stirring constantly. Using small brush, brush chocolate about 1/8-inch (3 mm) thick over backs of leaves. Refrigerate at least 1 hour until firm. Peel off leaves, handling as little as possible.
