This recipe is from the Dallas Morning News Food Section, circa 1990(???).
- 3⁄4 cup evaporated milk
- 1⁄4 cup butter (or margarine)
- 2 unsweetened chocolate squares (1 oz sq each)
- 1⁄2 cup sugar
- 2 cups coffee ice cream, slightly softened
- 1 chocolate-flavored pie crust (save the plastic lid!)
- 1⁄2 cup heavy whipping cream
- 2 tablespoons coffee liqueur
- 1⁄4 cup pecans, coarsely chopped
- In a small saucepan, cook evaporated milk, butter, chocolate and sugar over low heat, stirring constantly 10 to 15 minutes until thick as cooked pudding before it cools.
- Cool completely.
- Spoon softened ice cream into pie crust and spread evenly.
- Spread chocolate mixture over ice cream.
- Place pie in freezer.
- Beat heavy cream with electric mixer until soft peaks form when beaters are lifted.
- With mixer running, add coffee liqueur and beat until completely blended and stiff peaks form.

- Cover pie with plastic lid and freeze at least 4 hours until firm.
- About 15 mins before serving, remove lid, sprinkle with nuts and place in the refrigerator to soften ice cream slightly.
