The Chocolate Haupia Pie recipe comes in two parts: a crust containing macadamia nuts, and the haupia filling.

Haupia Pie Crust Recipe

from the “Hilo Haupia Squares” recipe by Sam Choy


1/2 cup macadamia nuts (roasted, unsalted)
1 cup cold butter
2 cups flour
1/4 cup light brown sugar


1. Heat oven to 350*F.

2. Pulse nuts in food processor till coarsely chopped.

3. Cut butter into pat-sized pieces.

4. Add butter, flour, and sugar to processor.

5. Pulse till butter is fully incorporated; it will just look like a dry, crumbly mixture.

6. Dump it into a 9x13 baking dish, and press with your hands to cover the bottom and about an inch or so up the sides of the pan.

7. Bake 15 minutes, till golden brown.

While the crust is baking, you can start making the haupia pudding for the filling.

Haupia Pie Filling Recipe

adapted from “Maika’i Favorites” by way of the Honolulu Star-Bulletin


10 ounces semi-sweet chocolate
2, 10-ounce cans of coconut milk (we like the Mae Ploy brand)
1-1/2 cups milk
1-1/2 cups sugar
3/8 cup cornstarch
1-1/2 cups water


1. Whisk coconut milk, milk, and sugar together in a small saucepan. In a separate bowl, whisk the cornstarch and water to make a slurry. Bring the coconut milk mixture to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Slowly pour in the cornstarch slurry, whisking until thickened.
