German Chocolate Pie

I knew my parents were coming over today so I made a pie. I served them and they said it was the best chocolate pie they have ever had. Now it might just be my parents trying to make their little girl feel good about herself, but after I sent the rest of the pie home with them I sure was wishing I had more ;o). I love my parents, they are great! Even if they did exaggerate a little, I do think this pie is really good and you will be happy you took the time to make it!

1 pre-baked 9″ deep dish pie shell

Caramel Coconut Pecan Layer:
1/2 cup caramel ice cream topping
1/2 cup chopped pecans

3 Tbl corn starch
1/8 tsp salt
