GERMAN CHOCOLATE FUDGE PIE — A rich, brownie-like pie filling is topped with a traditional German chocolate frosting in this decadent chocolate pie that’s loaded with pecans and coconut.
Oh my! Talk about decadent and delicious. If you love German chocolate cake, you are going to love this German Chocolate Fudge Pie.
This rich, fudge-like pie, is topped with classic homemade coconut pecan frosting, just like a German chocolate cake would be.
Made this pie yesterday, but with dark cocoa and unsweetened coconut. Delicious! Thanks for sharing your recipe. It’s better than any German Chocolate cake I ever had. I will definitely make it again for a special occasion. ~ Dana
The chocolate filling is loaded with semi-sweet chocolate chips and pecans, and tastes a lot like a dense, chewy brownie.
And the frosting! It was hard not to eat it all with a spoon. The recipe does make a generous amount of frosting though, so feel free to sample a few bites.
Feel free to use your favorite pie crust recipe, or if you prefer a shortcut, like me, a refrigerated pie crust works just as well.
My family honestly can’t tell the difference between store bought and home-made when it comes to pie crust, so I’d rather focus on creating a delicious filling.
This pie is AMAZING!!!! ~ Aurora
I prefer pecans, but you could also use walnuts in this recipe with great results. This pie is super rich and decadent, so I suggest starting out with a small slice. Going back for seconds is always an option!
If you have a chocolate and coconut lover in your life, I suggest you make them this pie immediately! You’ll have a best friend for life.
