This classic pie is made extra special with the addition of chocolate and caramel.
Preheat oven to 375°F. Beat sugar, butter, corn syrup, cocoa powder, salt and eggs in medium bowl with wire whisk or hand beater until well blended.
Stir in chopped pecan pieces.
Pour into pre-made pie crust.
Bake 40 to 50 minutes or until center is set (if crust begins to brown too fast, use a piece of foil as a shield to cover the entire pie.)
After removing the pie from the oven, allow it to cool for approx. 10 minutes. Top with toasted pecan halves. Then heat caramel sauce in warm water or microwave; drizzle desired amount over top of pecans. Serve pie with ice cream and enjoy!
