Chocolate Pecan Pie

1 (8oz) package 1/3-less-fat cream cheese, softened
1/3 cup hazelnut spread (Nutella)
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg
1/2 cup pecans, chopped/crushed
1 prepared piecrust (I used graham cracker, also could use OREO if you want it REALLY chocolaty!)
1 cup whipped topping
2 Tbsp. mini chocolate chips

1.  Heat oven to 325.
2.  In large bowl, combine cream cheese, hazelnut spread, and 1/4 c. sugar.  Beat on medium for 3 minutes or until well blended.  Add egg and 1/4 c. pecans and beat until blended.  Pour into prepared piecrust.  
3.  Bake at 325 for about 30 minutes or until center is just set.  Remove pie from oven and cool completely on wire rack.  
4.  Once pie is cooled, spread whipped topping over pie, and sprinkle with remaining pecans and chocolate chips.  

**This was a wonderfully easy recipe that really satisfies a chocolate craving!
