  • 1 (9 inch) deep dish pie shell frozen, refrigerated or homemade
  • ¼ cup salted butter
  • 1 [4] oz package German chocolate chopped
  • 1 [12] oz can evaporated milk [not condensed]
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup packed light brown sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • ¼ cup cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup pecans roughly chopped and divided
  • 1 ½ cup sweetened flaked coconut divided


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Fit the pie crust into a 9-inch deep dish pie plate.
  • In a small saucepan over low heat, melt together the butter and German chocolate. Stir until smooth. Remove from the heat and add the milk.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the granulated sugar, brown sugar, eggs, cornstarch, vanilla and salt. Whisk until fully combined then Gradually whisk in the chocolate mixture.
  • Sprinkle ½ cup of pecans and ½ of the sweetened flaked coconut on the bottom of the pie shell. Pour the chocolate mixture evenly on top then sprinkle the remaining pecans and coconut on top.
  • Bake for 50-60 minutes or until the center is set when gently shaken. Check the top at 35 minutes and place a piece of aluminum foil on top to prevent the crust from over browning, if needed.
  • Cool completely to room temperature before cutting.
  • Serve with fresh whipped cream or vanilla ice cream and garnish with chocolate curls, if desired.
