MY REVIEW

Oh, my goodness, what a delicious pie. You just can't beat that German chocolate flavor. It is one of the easiest pies to prepare and an added plus is that it can stay in the freezer for up to 3 months. Not that it will at this house but that is good to know if preparing it in advance for a party. Definitely worth five stars.

I have been making this pie for over 30 years. Instead of using a graham crust I always use a prepared chocolate cookie pie crust. Everyone loves this easy to make pie.

When I made it, I dressed it up a little by spreading an 8 oz tub of whipped topping on top; then sprinkling 1/2 cup toasted coconut and 1/2 cup toasted pecans over the whipped topping. It recieved rave reviews from everone who tasted it, including my husband.
