This Coconut Chocolate Pecan Pie is the trifecta of coconut, pecans, and chocolate. It is a great new spin on a classic pecan pie and perfect to make for Thanksgiving. 

Chocolate Coconut Pecan Pie

Growing up, pecan pie was always a must on the dessert table at Thanksgiving. It was always the pie I chose, though let’s be honest, I had a slice of almost every pie on the table. My aunt made pecan pie every year and ‘til this day, I think of her when I make mine.

KARO® IS THE ULTIMATE PECAN PIE INGREDIENT

For this post, I’m partnering with Karo® Corn Syrup, the secret to a super silky yet gooey and rich pecan pie. It’s a vital ingredient in pecan pie because it allows the sugars to caramelize instead of crystallizing. And pairing it with a chocolate bottom and flaky coconut makes for a fun twist on a traditional dessert.

HOW TO MAKE COCONUT CHOCOLATE PECAN PIE

  1. Make your pie crust or use a store-bought pie crust. I made my own. Fit the pie crust into your pie dish and transfer it to the freezer. 
  2. In a bowl, place the chopped chocolate and pour the warmed cream over it. Mix to melt the chocolate and create a ganache. Add it to the bottom of the pie crust and transfer it to the freezer until it turns solid.
  3. Meanwhile, separately, in a bowl, whisk together the brown sugar, Karo® Corn Syrup, eggs, and salt.
  4. Layer the coconut and pecans over the chocolate bottom and then pour the Karo mixture over it.
  5. Brush the edges of the pie crust with egg wash and then transfer to the oven.
  6. Bake for about 55 minutes until puffy and the edges of the pie crust are golden brown. 
  7. Don’t skip this: let your pie cool to room temperature before slicing. This is crucial if you want it to set properly. 
  8. Don’t forget to serve it with ice cream or whipped cream!

TIPS AND TRICKS

  • If you want to make it ahead of time, make the crust the night before. Make the filling the night before and keep it in the fridge in a bowl. Make the ganache the night before and then just before pouring it in, warm it in the microwave for a minute or so, just until melted.
