19-inchfrozen pie crust
1cupdark chocolate chips
15soft caramels, cut into quarters
1cupgraham cracker crumbs
1cupshredded sweetened coconut
1can (14 ounces)sweetened condensed milk
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
Mix all of the filling ingredients together in a large bowl. Make sure everything is well blended.
Pour the filling into the frozen pie crust and spread it flat inside the crust.
Bake the pie for 45 minutes. The pie should be a dark brown and be set in the center. Let it cool for about 15 minutes before slicing and serving.
I like to use Werther’s Original soft caramels which are easy to cut and can be found in most grocery stores.
No need to thaw the pie crust for this recipe; you can fill the crust straight out of the freezer.
If the top of the pie starts to become too dark as it bakes, gently lay a piece of foil over the top of the pie and continue baking. The foil will block the direct heat from the oven, preventing the top from burning but still letting the filling continue to cook.
