Ingredients Quantity
9-inch pie crust 1

German sweet chocolate 4 oz
Butter 2 tablespoons
Sweetened condensed milk 1 can (14 oz)
Large egg yolks 4
Vanilla extract 1 teaspoon

Topping Ingredients:
Ingredients Quantity
Brown sugar 1/2 cup
Heavy whipping cream 1/2 cup
Butter (for topping) 1/4 cup
Large egg yolks (for topping) 2
Flaked coconut 1 cup
Vanilla extract (for topping) 1 teaspoon
Pecans (for topping) 1/4 cup
Prepare the Crust:
Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
Place a 9-inch pie crust in a pie dish and set it aside.
Make the Filling:
In a double boiler or a heatproof bowl set over a pot of simmering water, melt 4 oz of German sweet chocolate and 2 tablespoons of butter together, stirring until smooth. Remove from heat and let it cool slightly.
In a separate bowl, whisk together 1 can (14 oz) of sweetened condensed milk, 4 large egg yolks, and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract until well combined.
Gradually add the melted chocolate mixture to the egg mixture, stirring until smooth.
Fold in 1 cup of chopped pecans.

Assemble the Pie:
Pour the chocolate filling into the prepared pie crust, spreading it out evenly.
Bake the Pie:
Bake the pie in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, or until the filling is set and the crust is golden brown. Remove from the oven and let it cool slightly.
Prepare the Topping:
In a saucepan, combine 1/2 cup of packed brown sugar, 1/2 cup of heavy whipping cream, and 1/4 cup of chopped butter. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture comes to a boil. Remove from heat.
Stir in 1 cup of flaked coconut, 1/4 cup of chopped pecans, and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract until well combined.

Finish Baking:
Pour the coconut-pecan topping over the baked pie, spreading it out evenly.
Return the pie to the oven and bake for an additional 10-15 minutes, or until the topping is golden brown.
Cool and Serve:
Allow the pie to cool completely before slicing and serving.
Serve with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream, if desired.
