  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat a 9x5-inch loaf pan with cooking spray. In a small saucepan cook and stir chocolate and the water over low until melted and smooth; cool.
  2. Meanwhile, in a small bowl stir together brown sugar and pecans. Using a fork, cut in butter until crumbly.
  3. In a large bowl stir together flour, baking soda, pumpkin pie spice and salt. In a medium bowl combine the remaining ingredients. Add pumpkin mixture to flour mixture; stir just until moistened.
  4. Spread half of the batter into the prepared loaf pan. Drizzle with half of the melted chocolate; swirl chocolate into batter with a narrow metal spatula. Repeat with the remaining batter and chocolate. Sprinkle with pecan mixture.
  5. Bake 40 to 45 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool bread in pan on a wire rack 10 minutes. Remove; cool completely on wire rack.
