I did change one thing, the crust, when making this recipe! I used a crushed Oreo cookie crust instead of the graham cracker one, & then sprinkled 1 cup of the toasted coconut over the top of the crust crust just before topping that with the filling & baking it! Worked great for me, & we much-appreciated the combo of pumpkin, coconut & chocolate! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Please Review My Recipe]
