German Chocolate Fudge Pie
There is absolutely nothing to dislike about this pie. Unless you dislike chocolate, coconut, or pecans, and then we have problems. This German Chocolate Fudge Pie consists of a fudgy, chocolate, brownie-like filling on top of a buttery pie crust, and the icing on the pie is coconut pecan frosting. Delicious perfection.
Ingredients: Chocolate Fudge Pie (adapted very slightly from here)
1 nine-inch pie crust
1 and 1/2 cups granulated sugar
3/4 cup unsweetened natural cocoa powder
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup half-and-half
1/4 cup unsalted butter
4 ounces German chocolate
2/3 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 large eggs
3 large egg yolks
Coconut Pecan Frosting (from here)
1 (14oz) can condensed milk
3 large egg yolks
1/2 cup salted butter
1 and 1/2 cups flaked coconut
1 cup roughly chopped pecans
Recipe: Chocolate Fudge Pie
Preheat the oven to 350F.
In a large bowl, whisk together the sugar, cocoa powder, flour and salt.
In a medium saucepan, melt together the half-and-half, butter, and chocolate, over medium heat, until smooth.
Let it cool slightly while you mix the eggs into the dry mixture. Then mix in the chocolate batter until smooth and well-combined.
Pour into the pie shell and bake for about 45 minutes, or until cracks start appearing on top of the pie.
Cool before serving.
Coconut Pecan Frosting
In a large saucepan over low heat, stir the condensed milk, eggs, and butter until the mixture has thickened and is slightly bubbly.
Take off heat and mix in the flaked coconut and pecans. Let come to room temperature before putting on the pie.
