Ingredients

Ganache Ingredients

  • 1.4 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Coconut Cream Filling Ingredients

  • 1 can coconut milk
  • heavy cream enough added to coconut milk to make 3
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/3 cup cornstarch
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon coconut extract

1 recipe graham cracker crust or other crust

  • fresh whipped cream lightly sweetened
  • 1 cup coconut flakes toasted*

Graham Cracker Crust Recipe

  • 12 graham crackers crushed
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 6 tablespoons butter melted

Instructions

  • For the Graham Cracker Crust: Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Finely crush the graham crackers in a medium sized bowl. Stir in sugar. Drizzle in butter and mix with fork until well combined. Firmly press into pie plate. Bake for 13-15 minutes, just until crust barely starts to brown. Cool completely before filling.
  • For the Ganache: Place chocolate chips in a heat-safe, medium sized bowl. In a small saucepan, bring the heavy cream to a boil. Pour boiling cream over chocolate chips and stir until smooth. Spread onto the prepared pie crust. Place in fridge or freezer to cool and solidify completely.
  • For the Coconut Cream Filling: Mix coconut milk, heavy cream, egg yolks, sugar, cornstarch and salt in a medium sized saucepan. Place over medium-low heat and bring to boil, stirring constantly. The mixture will become very thick. This may take as long as 10-15 minutes. Below you can see what the custard looks like once it’s all ready to go:
  • Once it reaches this consistency remove from heat and stir in coconut and vanilla extracts. Spread over cooled ganache layer and refrigerate for 3-4 hours.
  • Top with whipped cream and toasted coconut*.
  • *To toast coconut, preheat oven to 325 degrees. Spread coconut flakes onto baking sheet and place in oven. Bake for 10-12 minutes, stirring and tossing often until lightly browned.
