Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Layer pie crusts like you would a venn diagram, so they overlap largely in the middle. Use a rolling pin to flatten out the center, until you’ve created a rectangle large enough to fill the bottom and sides of a 13”x9” pan. Place crust in pan, smoothing out any tears or folds to get it to fit the shape of the pan. In a large mixing bowl, whisk brown sugar, corn syrup, and eggs. Fold in 1 cup chocolate chips and all of the pecans. Pour mixture in pan, creating a smooth layer. Bake for 25-27 minutes, or until the pecan mixture has turned a deep golden brown and has mostly set in the center. Cool, then refrigerate for at least 1 hour. Before serving, heat remaining chocolate chips in the microwave in 25-second intervals, stirring in between, until fully melted. Drizzle atop pie, then cut into bars.
