    Great pie, but way too sweet for our taste. I will try to cut back to only one cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips next time.

    We love this and many of kids request it for their birthday dessert, thus we have renamed it, "Birthday Pie". I use half butterscotch chips and half chocolate chips and also stir in 1/4 cup heath bar crunches. I drizzle hot caramel sauce over the top before serving alongside a dollop of ice cream.

    It was considered a success at book club! I set the timer for 45 minutes, but it should have come out at 40 minutes - probably just my oven though. I agree with Brenda, the name is misleading; there is a lot of chocolate compared to pecans. Overall, still a great recipe!

    This is a delicious pie and I liked the combination of flavors, but I think the name is a bit misleading as it's more of a chocolate pie than a pecan pie. Next time, I'd double the pecans and cut the chocolate chips in half.

    Delicious! This is similar to a chocolate pecan pie that I have been making for years. I like the addition of coconut in this recipe. When I make this again, I will not sprinkle the top with coconut right before baking, because it gets too brown and burns. Maybe sprinkle it on the last 10 minutes, or not at all.

    Excellent! I brought this over to my sister Joyce's house for Sunday Dinner Dessert. They requested it after seeing it in the magazine the week before. Everyone loved it and said it was a keeper! The only change I made was using light corn syrup instead of dark because that is what I had in the pantry.

    A nice change from plain pecan pie.
