Decadent Chocolate Pie

November 29th is National Chocolates Day, which is one day after my 26th wedding anniversary this year. In honor of chocolates day I thought it would be nice to make a few chocolate pies. I will be making another one for our anniversary and will be posting it, so check back after the 28th of the month if you'd like some new dessert recipes.

The following recipe is not my own but one that a friend gave me a few years ago to try. I was going through some recipes today and as soon as I found this one I knew it would be perfect to go along with dinner tonight.

Knowing how much my husband loves coconut it's sure to be a big hit as not only does it have coconut in it but pecans as well.

Pie ingredients
Pie ingredients

Whenever I am cooking I like to get all my ingredients out and together before starting. This way I'm not in the middle of a recipe only to discover I don't have one of the needed items to complete the recipe.

For this pie I used a frozen pie shell. I'm not the best pastry maker and find that these are easy to use. This pie would also be great in a graham cracker pie shell or even a chocolate pie shell.

Cool whip with shaved chocolate as a topper on the pie would be a very nice addition.

Please not that my oven tends to cook faster than most so you may need to leave the pie baking for a bit longer than what I did.

Prep time: 20 min
Cook time: 40 min
Ready in: 1 hour
Yields: 8-10 people depending on slice size

Ingredients

  • 3/4 of a cup of packed brown sugar
  • 3/4 of a cup of corn syrup
  • 4 squares of semi-sweet chocolate (I used Bakers)
  • 6 Tbs. of butter
  • 3 eggs (not shown in the picture)
  • 1 1/3 cups of flaked coconut
  • 1 cup of chopped pecans
  • 1 9 " pie shell unbaked at room temperature

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350° F.
  2. In a microwavable bowl combine the brown sugar and corn syrup. Place into the microwave and cook on high for 4 minutes or until boiling.
  3. Remove the bowl and add the chocolate squares along with the butter stirring until the chocolate are completely melted. Cool for a few minutes.
  4. Beat each egg in a small bowl one by one, and stir into the chocolate mixture.
  5. Next add the coconut and stir. Stir in the pecans and then pour the mixture into the pie shell.
  6. I put the pie into a glass pie plate just in case it boiled over. It didn't but it's always better to be safe than to be cleaning up a mess in your oven.
  7. Carefully place the pie into the oven and bake for 48 minutes or until you can insert a knife into the middle of the pie and have it come out clean.
  8. Remove when baked and cool on a wire rack.
  9. Serve and ENJOY!

      Lemon meringue, but it's now a challenge to eat because of all the acid, however I still love it. Recently I was craving pecan pie so headed to my local co-op only to find out they had just sold the last one, but then someone in the deli found the last piece in a tasting cup and it satisfied my taste.

      If it's pie, it's my favorite, lol! OMG, Susan, this sounds AWESOME!!! I make a pretty awesome chocolate bourbon pecan pie myself, but I'm a sucker for coconut, so I may have to try this one, too. So many calories, so little time! :)

      Pecan pie is my favorite, but this sounds so good, it may very well take the place of my favorite. YUM! With three of my favorite things, how could I not like it?

      @esmonaco: I hope you enjoy it as much as we did. I had hoped there would be a few slices left for the following day but it was all gone right after dinner.

      You create the best recipe lenses. This is definitely pie to live for. My favorite kind of pie? Cherry pie, always and forever. Also love custard pie. I'd be suffering right now with all these pastry thoughts if I didn't have some cherry turnovers baking in the oven. :-)
