German Chocolate Pie

(Last day to enter the giveaway)

And last but not least...Pie #5.

I shared with you yesterday my love for coconut.  Which is the reason this little pie was put on the short list.  Not only did we combine chocolate and coconut we added nuts.  


My kids were super disappointed that I didn't make them a pie they could eat.  They hate coconut (and lets not even talk about the nuts) and then when I made that beauty from 2 days ago (the chocolate peanut butter torte), I gave all but one piece away (and the hubs and I ate that piece before they got home from school--I know shame on us :)

I was not their favorite mom that day.  But I have been the hubs favorite all week.  He shares the same love of coconut and nuts as me so this was win-win for both of us (and the neighbors who we shared with too in case you've been thinking we are eating all this pie ourselves!).

This pie was fantastic warm out of the oven with some ice cream.  It's making my mouth water just thinking about it.  Not to mention a super easy pie to throw together.  

Hopefully you have found a new pie to try for Thanksgiving this year, I know we sure have.
