Oh gosh, this was a hit, both in appearance and taste! Rather than using chocolate ice cream topping, I made a simple ganache by pouring 1 cup of simmering cream over 1 cup of chocolate chips, stirring until smooth, and cooling in refrigerator. I like Almond Joys, so between each layer, I poured not only the chocolate ganache, but some chopped almonds and some of the toasted coconut. I topped the whole thing with more chocolate, almonds and coconut as well (I've posted a photo). It was delicious, but even better the next day, served frozen. I think that next time, however, I will make this in a 9x13 pan - the pie was mile-high and difficult to slice in small enough pieces as it is extremely rich. We got 12 slices out of the pie; I'm sure that we would get 16 out of a 9x13 pan.
