German Chocolate Pie

Kathie Carr


So Good!!! This recipe came from an Amish woman who sold baked goods at our local Farmer's Market. She was so generous to give out her great recipes.

She made the pie crust from scratch, of course. But you can buy refrigerated crust or frozen, if you prefer.

This pie is something like pecan pie. Its baked (not a pudding) and very rich and decadent.

1 c
light corn syrup
3 large
1 c
2 Tbsp
butter, melted
1 tsp
vanilla extract
2 c
chopped pecans
3/4 c
flaked coconut
3/4 c
semisweet chocolate chips
prepared pie crust (9 inch deep dish)
cool whip, if desired, for topping before serving

Directions Step-By-Step

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix the corn syrup, eggs, sugar, butter, and vanilla together with an electric mixer (on medium speed) until light-colored and well blended. Stir in the pecans and coconut by hand.

Sprinkle the chocolate chips over the bottom of the prepared pie crust. Pour the corn syrup mixture over the chocolate chips.
Bake in preheated oven until top is set, 55 to 60 minutes. Cool completely on a rack before serving. This takes about 2 hours.

Serve with Cool Whip or whipped topping if desired. Store in refrigerator if you have any left-overs.
