Coconut Chocolate Pie

New Pinterest recipe!

It was really easy to make! And only required 4 things, most of which we had in bulk in the freezer!

So you just blend 1/2 a bag of coconut with 4 tbs of butter. 

Mix in the test of the bag of coconut with your fingers. 

Press into a pie pan.

Cover edges with tin foil. Bake for 15 min.

Take tin foil off, bake for another 5 min.

Nuke 1 cup of cream until it's boiling, stir every minute, so you don't burn it!

Pour over 8 oz of chocolate... I have no idea what this means... I used two 72% bars from trader joes that I had in the freezer. About 1/2 cup of milk chocolate chips from the freezer, and maybe 2-3 cups of semisweet chips from the freezer. 

Wisk the chocolate and cream together, pour into the 'pie shell' refrigerate at least 1 hour.


Verdict: the 'crust' did not stay together at all, and coconut has a million calories and grams of fat. 

The chocolate part is good and tastes like fudge.

Would I make it again? Yes, but with a normal pie crust and the coconut jut around the edge.

I think this might be the perfect base recipe for vintage's German chocolate pie....
