Prepare your favorite recipe of pastry shell by pre-baking slightly. Sprinkle chocolate pieces or chips over the bottom of shell. Set aside.
In a mixing bowl, combine the sugar and flour. Stir in the eggs, honey, butter, vanilla and salt. Add chopped pecans and mix well.
Pour into pastry shell. Arrange pecan halves around edge and center of pie.
Cover edges loosely with foil. Bake at 350° for 25 minutes. Remove foil; bake 20-25 minutes longer or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack.
Store in the refrigerator. Serve cool or slightly warmed with fresh whipped cream or vanilla ice cream!
This pie can be made up to 4 days ahead of time, and stored in the refrigerator! Serve at room temperature, with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream!
