As an aside, I made a pecan pie with Hershey's Kisses a few years ago and to my surprise, the chocolate didn't melt, it just got a little soft. Do the chocolate chips and/or chopped chocolate achieve "gooey" status?

Sort of semi-gooey.

Thanks guys!

One recipe I saw called for the chocolate to be melted then blended with other liquid ingredients. Other recipes called for scattering the chips on top of or mixedd into the pie.

I plan to melt and blend. I want chocolate flavor in the pie, not chunks of chocolate.

If that's what you want, then use the cocoa or cooking chocolate; chocolate chips and Hershey's Kisses are made not to melt in the food!
