Ingredients
  • 1 pie crust (use your favorite pie crust recipe or you can use pillsbury pie crust that you unroll..there are 2 in the box and you will just need one)
  • For the filling:
  • 4 ounces German sweet chocolate, chopped
  • 2 ounces unsweetened chocolate, chopped

  • ½ cup heavy whipping cream
  • ¼ cup butter, sliced
  • 2 egg yolks

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup chopped pecans or walnuts
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400°. On floured surface, roll out pie dough to a ⅛" and place into a 9" pie plate, flute edges. Place 2 sheets of foil over the top of the dough (don't poke holes in crust) then fill the crust with dried beans or dry rice. Bake 11-13 minutes or until bottom is lightly browned. Remove foil and dry beans or dry rice and bake 6-8 minutes longer or until light brown. Cool on a wire rack. Reduce oven setting to 350°.
  2. To make filling, melt chocolates in a large bowl in microwave, stirring until smooth. Cool slightly. Whisk in condensed milk, 4 egg yolks and vanilla, then stir in pecans. Pour into crust. Bake 16-19 minutes or until set. Cool 1 hour.
  3. To make topping: In a small heavy saucepan, combine brown sugar, whipping cream and butter. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stir constantly to dissolve sugar. Remove from heat. In a small bowl, whisk a small amount of hot mixture into egg yolks. then return all to pan, whisking constantly (very important not to stop stirring) Cook 2-3 minutes or until mixture thickens and a thermometer reads 160°. Remove from heat. Stir in the coconut and vanilla; cool for another 10 minutes.
  4. Pour over filling and spread evenly, sprinkle with pecans.
  5. Refrigerate 4 hours or until cold.
