"A delicious pie recipe from my mother-in-law. You can make a graham cracker crust instead of the macaroon cookie crust, if desired. Prep time does not include chilling time."

  1. Ohmygoodness! This is a wonderfully easy and rich pie. The ribbon of chocolate fudge is WONDERFUL! I'm using this for my Oscar nite party for sure! Thanks for sharing!
  2. Made this for my DH's birthday because two of his favorite things are coconut and chocolate. It was a huge hit and he made me promise to make it often. I made it with the macaroon crust and am so glad I did. It was spectacular.
