For dessert I found a recipe from Plain Chicken, a blog that I follow. I actually saw this online a few months ago and knew I had to make it for dad. His favorite dessert is Pecan Pie, so to spice it up I made Chocolate Cheesecake Pecan Pie!
1 pie crust
1 (8-oz.) package milk chocoalte cream cheese, softened
4 large eggs, divided
6 Tbsp sugar, divided
2 teaspoons vanilla extract, divided
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 cups chopped pecans
1 cup light corn syrup
Preheat oven to 350.
Put the pie crust in a deep dish pie pan. Beat cream cheese, 1 egg, 2 Tbsp sugar, 1 tsp. vanilla, and salt at medium speed with an electric mixer until smooth. Pour cream cheese mixture into piecrust; sprinkle evenly with chopped pecans. Whisk together corn syrup and remaining 3 eggs, 4 Tbsp sugar, and 1 tsp. vanilla; pour mixture over pecans.
Place pie on a baking sheet. Bake for 50 to 55 minutes or until pie is set. Cool on a wire rack 1 hour or until completely cool. Refrigerate after leftovers.
