This pie brings back great memories of being stationed back in Hawaii. This was one of our favorite desserts. I'm so glad we don't have to be on the island to enjoy this great dessert.

How to Make ChamoritaMomma's Chocolate Haupia Pie

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bake crust for 15 minutes, or until golden brown. Set aside to cool. In a medium saucepan, whisk together milk, coconut milk and 3/4 to 1 cup sugar.
    2. In a separate bowl, dissolve the cornstarch in water. Bring coconut mixture to a boil. Reduce to simmer and slowly whisk in the cornstarch.
    3. Continue stirring mixture over low heat until thickened.
    4. Reserve 1/2 of the coconut mixture. Mix remaining half, while still warm, with the chocolate chips and whisk until completely melted and combine until smooth. Pour into bottom of baked pie shell; smooth with a spoon. Pour the reserved half of coconut mixture on top of chocolate layer and spread. Cover and refrigerate for about an hour or until firm.
    5. Stir cool whip a few times and layer on top of pie. Best if refrigerated a few hours or overnight. Slice and serve. If desired, garnish with chocolate shavings.
  2. **Depending on how "chocolately" you want it, add more or less of the chocolate chips. I prefer it around the amount I have posted.
