Foodie Friday: Chocolate Haupia Pie Recipe

There’s nothing not
to love about the Aloha state’s famed chocolate haupia pie. Rich chocolate
pudding, delightfully flaky crust, and velvety whipped cream merge to form a palatable
treat for the taste buds. Once you go Hawaiian, you never go back!


  • 1 9-in. unbaked pie crust
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 can coconut milk (14 oz.)
  • 1 tbsp. coconut extract
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup cornstarch
  • 7/8 cup chocolate (Dutch chocolate, or any chocolate with
    high cocoa butter content)
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup sugar



  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Bake crust for 15 minutes, or until golden brown. Set aside
    to cool.
  • In a medium saucepan, whisk together milk, coconut milk, coconut
    extract and 1 cup sugar.
  • In a separate bowl, dissolve the cornstarch in water.
  • After bringing coconut milk mixture to a boil, reduce to
    simmer and slowly whisk in the cornstarch mixture. Continue stirring over low
    heat until thickened—about three minutes. Divide evenly into two bowls.
  • In another bowl, microwave chocolate until melted.
  • Mix chocolate into one of the bowls of coconut pudding, then
    pour mixture into the pie crust, spread and let sit.
  • Pour the remaining bowl of coconut pudding on top of the
    chocolate-coconut pudding mixture and spread smooth being careful not to mix
    the two layers. Refrigerate the pie for an hour or more.
  • Whip the heavy cream with 1/4 cup of sugar until stiff. Layer
    the whipped cream on the pie surface. Garnish with chocolate shavings.
