A Drool-Worthy Chocolate Pie
When Heather Christo posted a chocolate pie recipe on her eponymous blog right before Christmas, she had a feeling it would be a hit. The crust is made from coconut and macadamia nuts, there's a thick layer of coconut ganache (with shredded coconut in it), then caramel, another layer of plain ganache and, finally, some toasted coconut and chopped macadamia nuts on top. It's not difficult to make, and it happens to be gluten-, dairy-, egg- and soy-free. Her gut feeling turned out to be right. Among the comments: "I think I just drooled a little."
