Coconut Chocolate Pecan Pie

I love a good pecan pie. It’s right up there with pumpkin on my list of favorite Thanksgiving desserts. But I think I love this Coconut Chocolate Pecan pie even more!

Coconut Chocolate Pecan Pie
This delicious dessert has all the flavors of a classic pecan pie, with the addition of chocolate and coconut. How could that not be an improvement? Unless you don’t like coconut, or chocolate. But even my husband, who isn’t a fan of pecan pie, likes this one! This pie is rich, gooey and decadent–everything a great pecan pie should be. Which is why it always makes an appearance on my Thanksgiving menu. Store bought pie dough or crust is absolutely fine here, but if you choose to make your own, I highly recommend this recipe for Grandma’s Secret Pie Crust.
