I was making a coconut pie for Thanksgiving, and I wanted to add a little something, something to it. I wasn't sure what so I found this. I used Chocolate Graham Crackers. OH man was it the extra kick that it needed. I did have to add quite a bit more butter to it to get it to hold together, yet it was just what the pie needed.
