Cooking Instructions

Preheat oven to 325 degrees, coat pie pan with cooking spray. Place toasted nuts in food processor, add dry ingredients. Pulse until a fine meal is achieved. Add cold butter a little at a time and pulse. Add milk and vanilla, pulse again. Crust will slowly form. Press mixture into pie pan, bake for 25-35 minutes. Cool.

In medium pan, add coconut milk, milk, sugar and whisk. In separate bowl, whisk cornstarch and water until smooth. Turn burner on medium and stir the milk mixture constantly. Once it comes to a boil, turn heat down to a simmer and SLOWLY add cornstarch mixture, whisking constantly for three minutes until mixture thickens. In a microwave safe bowl, melt chocolate in microwave for 1 minute, stir, then repeat until completely melted (2-3 minutes). Separate the coconut pudding mixture into two equal portions. Add melted chocolate to one of the puddings and stir until entirely mixed. Pour coconut pudding over the pie crust. Let the chocolate pudding cool for 5-10 minutes, then pour over the coconut pudding. Refrigerate for two hours, garnish.
