Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 9-inch deep dish pie plate with non-stick cooking spray, and set aside.
Set aside 1/2 cup of the coconut, then combine remaining coconut with melted butter in a medium mixing bowl. Toss until mixture is evenly moistened, then firmly press into bottom and sides of prepared pie dish. Bake 15 minutes. Cool completely on a wire rack.
Spread 2 Tbsp caramel ice cream sauce evenly over top. Allow the chocolate ice cream to soften at room temperature slightly then spread into cooled crust while smoothing top to form an even layer. Then, sprinkle evenly with remaining coconut and salted peanuts. Repeat a layer of caramel sauce.
Freeze until pie is firm enough to cut into clean slices. About 1 hour.

Yummy this chocolate pie looks absolutely amazing. I'm always looking for time savers and this seems pretty simple. It would be great to take along to a pot luck or as a dessert for your own home dinner party. It's easy to make and chances are you have everything in your store cupboard. I love coconut and peanuts so I think I'm going really love trying this out.

My first slice of German Chocolate cake was like having a slice of heaven right here on earth. My older sister was always the forward thinking one in the family. She was famous for bringing new dishes and crafts in our life. (I miss her so much) This made me think about her and those wonderful new recipes she brightened up our lives with.

Yum! I love German Chocolate Cake, and this is a great variation on it. The use of coconut as the base is really clever and I'm looking forward to trying it. I think I'd add some chocolate topping to the caramel topping drizzled on top. I think almonds or walnuts would also make for a nice nut topping besides the peanuts. Looking forward to making this for the holidays.

My husband loves German Chocolate cake and I seldom make it for him. Why? Even though it is his favorite cake, because I have a tremendous sweet tooth, guess who eats most if it? This may be a good one to try because I can leave the leftovers in the freezer. No need to eat it because it will not spoil

With German Chocolate cake being my absolute favorite...I was pretty excited when I ran across this recipe, and although it's not quite what I would have expected it still sounds amazing. The coconut crust is such a clever idea... I wish I would have thought of it sooner. I'm not really a big fan of chocolate ice cream so I think I'd have to use a vanilla chocolate swirl instead and throw in some chopped pecans to make it complete
