Total 2 hours (refrigeration)
Medium size microwaveable bowl
9″ Pie Plate
Wax or Parchment paper
1-gallon size Ziploc bag
1 cup American Heritage Chocolate Drink Mix
1 tablespoon butter or Coconut oil
1 cup finely chopped Pecans
¾ cup coconut

In medium bowl microwave chocolate for one-minute remove and stir, add butter and microwave for an additional 30 seconds
Stir until butter and chocolate are well blended
Add in pecans and coconut to chocolate and mix ingredients together
Spread evenly into lined pie plate
The chocolate mixture is sticky, I placed a piece of wax over the chocolate pie crust to work it up the sided of the pie plate,
Cover and Refrigerate for one hour.
I slipped the pie plate into a gallon Ziploc bag. Chocolate easily absorbs other flavors, so I always like to use an air tight container when storing chocolate in the frig.
Chill for one hour and remove pie crust for plate and carefully peel back the foil.
Replace crust back into pie plate or on a serving dish.
Fill with ice cream or pudding pie filling
Filling: Use any no bake pie filling. I used a vanilla instant pudding & pie filling (5.1 0z) Follow instructions on the package, Pour into pie crust and chill for at least an additional hour.
Top with crushed peppermint candy canes.
Even the simplest dessert seems touched with a magical goodness when you add chocolate to it.
Enjoy! May Christmas warm your heart the whole year long.
