Preheat an oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Create a crust by pulsing 9 chocolate graham crackers and 1/3 cup of chopped pecans in a food processor. Add 3 tablespoons of melted butter, and run the food processor until the mixture is moist. Keep 2 tablespoons of the pie crust for later, pour the rest into a 9-inch pie plate, and press it into the bottom and sides of the container. Bake the pie crust for 10 minutes, and transfer it to a cooling rack.
While the crust cools, melt 1 stick of unsalted butter, and mix in 2 ounces of chopped unsweetened chocolate in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Take the pan off the heat, add 2 tablespoons of all-purpose flour and a pinch of salt, and mix the filling until smooth. Stir in 1 1/4 cups of granulated sugar, 2 tablespoons of light corn syrup, 2 tablespoons of coffee liquor, 1 1/2 teaspoons of vanilla extract and 3 large eggs individually. Pour the filling into the crust, and bake for about 30 minutes until it cracks on top. Transfer the pie to a cooling rack, and let it cool for around two hours.
Make homemade whipped cream by beating 1 1/2 cups of cold heavy cream, 1 tablespoon of confectioners' sugar and 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract until it forms soft peaks. Spread the whipped cream over the pie, and sprinkle 3 tablespoons of finely chopped pecans and the 2 tablespoons of pie crust mixture over the whipped cream. Drizzle chocolate sauce over the top, slice the pie, and serve the individual pieces.Learn more about Desserts
