  • 2
    In 2-quart saucepan, heat coconut milk, granulated sugar and milk to boiling over medium heat, stirring constantly. In small bowl, mix cornstarch and water. Reduce heat to medium-low; stir in cornstarch mixture until thickened.

    In large microwavable bowl, microwave chocolate chips uncovered on Medium (50%) about 2 minutes or until melted. Stir half (about 2 cups) of the coconut milk mixture (haupia) into the melted chocolate. Spread in baked shell. Gently spread white haupia on top of chocolate layer. Refrigerate pie 2 hours.

    In chilled medium bowl, beat whipping cream and powdered sugar with electric mixer on medium speed until soft peaks form. Spread whipped cream over pie; sprinkle with chocolate shavings. Cover and refrigerate any remaining pie.

Expert Tips

  • To make chocolate shavings, pull a swivel-bladed vegetable peeler or thin, sharp knife across a block of chocolate. The curls will be easier to make if the chocolate is slightly warm (let it stand in a warm place for about 15 minutes before cutting). Use a toothpick to lift the curls and arrange them on pie.
  • Did you know? Haupia is a traditional coconut milk-based Hawaiian dessert.

More About This Recipe
  • Not sure what “haupia” is? We can help with that. Haupia is a coconut milk-based Hawaiian dessert. Traditionally, it is served at local gatherings in Hawaii and is often used as a topping for cakes and other desserts, like this chocolate pie recipe. Haupia is technically considered a pudding, but its consistency is more like a gelatin. Classic haupia calls for coconut milk to be heated and then mixed with cornstarch and sometimes sugar. Once the mixture has thickened, it is then chilled and ready to eat. Curious about other unique chocolate pies beyond the basic recipe? We have a lot of those!
