Q.†Can I substitute (mild) molasses for corn syrup in a recipe for (chocolate) pecan pie?

A.†You can certainly substitute light molasses for dark corn syrup (if thatís what the recipe calls for), as the two are quite similar. The replacement of molasses for light corn syrup will produce a pie with a stronger flavor, and may also seem sweeter. Whether the chocolate flavor in the pie is strong enough to overcome the additional taste of the molasses will depend on your taste.
