ALMOST as good as being IN hawaii

Who doesn't love chocolate haupia (coconut) pies from Ted's Bakery? What you've never heard of it? Well, it's on the North Shore of Oahu... next time your visiting the islands, make sure to pay them a visit! But until you do, you can make their famous pie at home...

Chocolate Haupia Pie
1 9-inch prepared pie crust
7 ounces semi-sweet chocolate
1-1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
1/4 cup sugar
Shaved chocolate, for garnish

Haupia:
1 can coconut milk
1 cup milk
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup cornstarch
1 cup water

Preheat oven & bake crust according to the directions.

Meanwhile, make haupia: Whisk coconut milk, milk and sugar together in a small saucepan. In a separate bowl, dissolve cornstarch in water. Bring coconut milk mixture to a boil, then reduce to a simmer and whisk in cornstarch mixture, whisking until thickened.

Microwave chocolate pieces on high 1 minute; stir to melt completely. Pour half the haupia into a bowl. Mix remaining haupia with melted chocolate and pour over the bottom of the baked pie crust. Layer white haupia over the top. Cool pie at least 1 hour in refrigerator.

Whip cream with 1/4 cup sugar until still peaks form. Garnish pie with whipped cream and shaved chocolate. Chill another hour. Serves 6 to 8.

I am very anxious to try this recipe. Lee lee has told me all about this pie when she first had it at Ted's a few years ago. Thanks for figuring out the recipe for the rest of us to make and enjoy!

i'd REALLY suggest that you go with the pudding option. That's what I did, and it worked out pretty good. I'm a little worried about the chocolate mixed in the haupia part. I tried it once, it didn't work so well, but I realized i used milk chocolate instead of semi-sweet... but I don't see the potential.
