Frozen Caramel Coconut Pie

20130227-203533.jpg

4 tablespoons butter
2 cups sweetened flaked coconut
1 cup chopped pecans
1 package (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened
1 can (14 oz.) sweetened condensed milk
12 ounces frozen whipped topping, thawed
1 jar (6 or 8 oz.) caramel ice cream topping
2 9-inch graham cracker crusts

Melt the butter in a large non-stick skillet. Add the coconut and pecans, stirring constantly until the coconut is lightly browned. Pour the coconut and pecans out on a plate to cool completely.
Use an electric mixer to combine the cream cheese and condensed milk, mixing until well blended. Fold in the whipped topping and one-half of the coconut mixture. Pour one-fourth of this mixture into the bottom of the two crusts. Spoon on as much caramel topping as you wish. Pour over the rest of the cream cheese mixture. Sprinkle with the remaining coconut and pecans. Freeze the pies at least 4 hours. Remove from the freezer about 20 minutes before serving time. Return any leftover pie to the freezer.
