In a sauce pan, combine the sugar, milk, and cornstarch and mix it till it turns smooth and soft. Cook it over medium flame till it is thickened and bubbly, and then reduce the heat to cook the mixture for another 2 minutes. Remove the heat and stir a small amount of this hot filling in the egg yolks and then add it to the initial pan. Stir it for some time and then place it on the heat again to bring it to boil for another 2 minutes. Remove it from the heat and add it to the chocolate mix, spoon it carefully in the pastry shell.

In another small sauce pan combine the evaporated milk, sugar, and butter and bring it to a boil. Remove from heat and add to the egg yolk to bring it back on the heat and stir it continuously to avoid lumps. After it is boiled turn off the heat and add the coconut and pecans. Then pour this over the chocolate filling and cool it on a wire rack. Cover it and refrigerate for at least 3 hours before you serve it.
