Amber's Chocolate Cashew Pie

Makes 1 Pie - 8 Servings

3/4 cup corn syrup
1/2 cup sugar
3 tablespoons butter, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 eggs
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup cashew halves


Mix all ingredients together in a saucepan over medium heat until chocolate is melted. Pour into a crust-lined 9" pie plate. Bake at 325 for 45-50 minutes.

It is a tradition in our house for me to make a Chocolate Pecan Pie every holiday. But it is not the easiest recipe to make, unlike this one. My good friend Amber brought this pie to one of our family get-togethers and it was an instant hit! The saltier version of cashews mixed with the classic chocolate flavor was amazing and considering how easy this pie is to make, we just couldn't NOT make it this year. So I am off the hook...for Thanksgiving this year at least, we will have Chocolate Cashew Pie in place of Chocolate Pecan Pie. Happy Thanksgiving!!
