How To Make

  • 1
    Melt chocolate with butter over low heat. Remove from heat and stir in evaporated milk.
  • 2
    In a separate bowl combine sugar, cornstarch, salt and eggs. Add the sugar mixture to the melted chocolate.
  • 3
    Stir in 1 cup of the coconut and 1/2 cup of the chopped pecans and vanilla.
  • 4
    Pour into the pie shell that has been placed on a cookie sheet. The cookie sheet will help the pie cook more evenly and prevent spill overs.
  • 5
    Sprinkle the top of the filling with the remaining 1/2 cup coconut and remaining 1/2 cup of pecans.
  • 6
    Place in a 350 oven and bake for 50-55 minutes or until the top puffs and just starts to brown and crack a little. Allow to cool for at least 3 hours before serving.
