Whisk the pie ingredients together: melted butter, egg, flour, sugar, coconut, vanilla paste and milk together.
Spread ¼ cup almonds on the bottom of the pie crust, cover with ½ of the melted milk chocolate.
Place in the freezer for 5 minutes to set up. After the chocolate sets up a little bit, pour in the pie filling.
Bake at 350 degrees for 40-45 minutes or until set. The top will be golden brown.
Allow to cool.
Scatter remaining ¼ cup almonds on the top of the cooled pie; pour melted chocolate over the almonds. Put in fridge for the chocolate to set up. Enjoy!
Sometimes you feel like a nut, sometimes you don’t? No problem.
To make a Mounds Pie: Leave out the almonds and use dark chocolate instead.
Best served at room temperature! If you'd like to eat it chilled, combine 3 tbsp of room temperature heavy whipping cream to the melted chocolate mixture before filling and topping the pie.
