Island Coconut Chocolate Pecan Pie Recipe

All I can say is the photo does not do this pie justice at all! The flavors in this pie are totally awesome! I was in a hurry and this should have been chilled longer so make sure before you cut it, it's cold! I happen to like my puddings warm when I eat them but that's not the way this one should be served. I really love the rum in this pie, of course you can substitute vanilla or your favorite liqueur of choice! The top will bake and look like pecan pie. Browned and more a yellow thick layer.
Perfect for the Holiday time as it does require a little more time than most and is special!  If your in a hurry this will not be the pie of choice to make.
Prepare the day before that would get the best results!
