Chocolate Haupia Pie

For this Chocolate Haupia Pie recipe, I traveled to the North Shore of Oahu to sample one of Hawaii’s greatest treats — the chocolate pie at Ted’s Bakery.  This little market in Sunset Beach is a favorite hangout for locals — who can’t get enough of this tropical-inspired pie, topped with coconut haupia custard, plenty of whipped cream and chocolate shavings.

To make this recipe for Chocolate Haupia Pie, you’ll need a nice flaky baked pie crust. You can buy one at the store, or use my easy pie crust recipe. I personally think it’s the best chocolate pie ever!

Chocolate Haupia Pie


  • Cornstarch Slurry:
  • 1/2 cup cornstarch
  • 1 cup of water
  • Coconut Haupia Recipe:
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 14 ounces of coconut milk
  • Chocolate Pie Filling:
  • 7 ounces semi-sweet chocolate
  • Whipped Cream Layer:

  1. To make this chocolate pie recipe, you'll need a nice flaky baked pie crust. You can buy one at the store, or use my easy pie crust recipe.
  2. In a measuring cup, mix 1/2 cup cornstarch into 1 cup of water and let it dissolve. This is your cornstarch slurry, which will thicken our Hawaiian haupia recipe.
  3. Over medium heat, bring 1 cup whole milk, 1 cup of sugar and 14 ounces of coconut milk to a boil. Reduce the heat on the milk to a simmer and stir in the cornstarch mixture. Now, we stir continuously until it thickens up.
  4. In a saucepan, melt 7 ounces of semi-sweet chocolate over low heat. Remove from heat and stir in half of the coconut mixture.
  5. Top baked pie crust with the chocolate pie filling, then top with the reserved Hawaiian coconut haupia custard. Refrigerate this for one hour.
  6. Our final touch on this homemade chocolate pie is the whipped cream. Whisk this until stiff peaks form.
  7. Now, just layer the homemade whipped cream on this no bake chocolate pie, top it with fresh shaved chocolate shavings.
