  • Mix the sugar, honey, molasses, butter and salt in a saucepan and bring to a boil on medium to low heat, stirring constantly.
  • Remove the saucepan from the heat, and then add the nuts and the chocolate chips.
  • Beat the eggs in a separate bowl with a whisk and then add them to the filling.
  • Let the filling cool slightly, before putting it into the warm pie shell.
  • You might need to put the pie shell back into the oven to warm it up before adding the pecan filling.
  • Bake in the lower third of an oven at 350F for 35 to 45 minutes.
