I've been looking for a recipe like this for a long time, finally found THE ONE! So very yummy, and actually very easy to make. Do use a deep dish pie plate and you won't have any messes!

Our son-in-law loves pie, so I try to make one for him often. This recipe has been in my file for years but never made it until yesterday. He an our daughter said it was really,really good and she asked for the recipe.

Loved this. I'm a big coconut & chocolate fan so this hit the spot. Can't wait to introduce the rest of my family to it. Definitely a keeper!
