Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Pecan Pie

I found this recipe in a Cooking Light magazine last year and made it for dinner with friends. It was such a hit, that I decided to make it for Thanksgiving this year. It doesn’t originally call for chocolate chips but Adam (as always) suggested adding them in. I wasn’t sure at first, but they really add a nice layer of flavor-and who doesn’t love chocolate and nuts, right? This really is delicious and a perfect ending to a wonderful feast on Thanksgiving or Christmas.
