chocolate haupia pie

The chocolate haupia pie is the one on the left…the white one. A week later.


  • 9″ pie crust, baked and cooled (normally, I’d bake my own, but it was nice that I didn’t have to)
  • 14 oz. can of coconut milk (you can use “light”)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1/2 cup cornstarch
  • 1 cup water
  • 7 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1/4 cup sugar

In a heavy saucepan, combine coconut milk, sugar, and whole milk using a wire whisk. Cook this mixture over medium heat until boiling, stirring constantly.

Combine cornstarch and water in a small bowl. Add slowly to coconut milk mixture. Simmer until thick.

Put semi-sweet chips in a heat proof bowl. Pour half of thickened coconut milk mixture over chocolate chips. Combine until chips are completed melted and the mixture is smooth.

Pour chocolate mixture in bottom of shell and spread. Spoon reserved coconut mixture over chocolate layer and spread.

Refrigerate at least one hour, but best to do refrigerate overnight.

Whip cream and 1/4 cup of sugar. Layer whipped cream on top and serve.

  1. I made the lemon truffle pie for a baby shower I hosted tonight. It was a huge hit. Thanks so much for sharing the recipe!

  2. so i love this pie. i totally need to make this. i’m so not a pie maker, either. but wow!anywho- i’m kicking around a wild idea of doing an internship if shane ends up deployed. but it’d be almost alternative- in that i’m thinking i’d do it for free if they just allowed me to show up and get the credit for it. do you know if the department you’re in would even consider that? (can you tell i’m using all my connections?!). 🙂
