German Chocolate Fudge Pie

German Chocolate Fudge Pie

Oh my! Talk about decadent and delicious. If you love German chocolate cake, you are going to love this rich, fudge-like pie, topped with classic homemade coconut pecan frosting. The chocolate filling is loaded with semi-sweet chocolate chips and pecans, and tastes a lot like a dense, chewy brownie. And the frosting! It was hard not to eat it all with a spoon. If you have a chocolate and coconut lover in your life, I suggest you make them this pie immediately! You’ll have a best friend for life.
