I am aborting this pie mission after making the "crust", which is a disaster. After adding the melted chocolate and butter to the confectioners sugar, it turns into little balls that look and taste horrible; there is no chocolate taste whatsoever. I did not add the 1.5 cups of coconut and I'm grateful that I won't be wasting additional ingredients. There is no way that the crust would press into a pie plate. It's just wrong. Sorry - won't be completing this recipe!
