1 8-ounce package Baker’s semi-sweet chocolate

1/4 cup butter or margarine

1 13-ounce can sweetened condensed milk

1-1/3 cups  angle flake coconut

3 eggs, slightly beaten

1/2 cup sugar

1 9-inch unbaked pastry shell (you’ll need a deep-dish)

whipped cream or ice cream (optional, but this is so rich, you’ll need it)


In a saucepan, melt chocolate and butter over medium heat. Add sweetened condensed milk, coconut, eggs and sugar. Stir until blended. Pour into unbaked pie shell. Bake in a preheated 400 deg oven for 30 min. (it took 40 in ours and the center was gooey--wouldn’t have required much more) Cool or serve warm with a dollop of whipped cream or ice-cream. Store in refrigerator.   makes 8 servings
