This was an easy pie to make and has a great chocolate flavor. I love coconut but I think other chocolate candy bars could be used as well. Definetely will make this again!

For fun I substituted the milk with coconut milk. It cooked up beautifully and for coconut fans, it was extra fantastic! (It was a rich,full bodied coconut milk purchased at Sunflower Markets.)
