Reshape aluminum tin, if bent. Trim parchment paper to match size of tin, then set both aside, keeping separate.
Make ice cream base
In a large bowl, vigorously whisk heavy cream until thickened and stiff peaks form, about 3 minutes. Add condensed milk, vanilla extract, pumpkin pie spice, and ¼ cup pumpkin purée and continue whisking vigorously until ingredients are combined and mixture is thickened.
Freeze ice cream
Transfer ice cream base to tin and spread in an even layer. Place trimmed parchment on top of ice cream base, pressing to adhere. Transfer tin to a flat surface in freezer. Chill until ice cream is thick and custard-like, 45-60 minutes.
Make cocoa candied pecans
While ice cream chills, heat a medium nonstick pan over medium-high heat. Carefully hover your hand a few inches away from the pan—when you can easily feel heat, add pecans. Toast, stirring, until golden, 3 minutes. Add sugar and cook, stirring frequently, until sugar begins to melt and cling to pecans, 2-3 minutes more. Remove pan from heat and add cocoa powder, stirring vigorously to coat pecans. Transfer to a plate and spread in an even layer to cool.
Once ice cream has chilled, place chocolate chips in a medium heat-proof bowl and microwave in 30-second intervals until completely melted. Alternatively, create a double boiler: Bring 2 inches water to a boil in a medium pot over high heat. Place bowl with chocolate over pot and stir until chocolate is melted and smooth, 2-4 minutes.
Plate pumpkin ice cream
Remove and discard parchment from tin, then scoop no-churn pumpkin ice cream into serving bowls. Drizzle over melted chocolate, garnish with cocoa candied pecans, and dig in!
