SOUTHERN SWEET CHOCOLATE PIE

1 pkg (4-oz) sweet cooking chocolate

1/4 cup butter
1 2/3 cups evaporated milk
1 1/2 cups sugar
3 tbsp cornstarch
1/8 tsp salt
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 unbaked 10-inch pie shell
1 1/3 cups flaked coconut
1/2 cup chopped pecans

In a saucepan over low heat mix the chocolate and butter, stirring constantly until blended. Remove from the heat then gradually blend in the evaporated milk. In a medium mixing bowl mix the sugar cornstarch and salt together. Beat in the eggs and vanilla then slowly blend in the chocolate mixture. Pour the mixture into the unbaked pie shell. Combine the coconut and pecans; sprinkle over the chocolate mixture. Bake at 375 degrees for 45 to 50 minutes or until puffed and browned. Cover loosely with aluminum foil during the last 15 minutes of baking if topping appears to be getting too brown. Allow to cool for at least 4 hours before serving; this will allow the filling to set. Garnish with dollops of whipped cream to serve.
