How to make Hawaii chocolate haupia pie. Here's a recipe.

chocolate_haupia_pie_recipeHAWAII Magazine reader Dinah Herrera e-mailed us for some help with a favorite Hawaii dessert:

Can you get me the recipe for the chocolate haupia pie at Anna Miller's restaurant?

You ask. We answer.

Chocolate haupia pie is something of a dessert institution in the Islands.

Haupia is a sweet, gelatinous Hawaiian dessert made with coconut milk. Here in Hawaii, you'll often find little cubes of chilled haupia among the food offerings at a traditional luau or on a Hawaiian mixed-plate lunch.

A chocolate haupia pie combines the popular dessert with rich chocolate and fresh-baked pie crust for an even more delectable dessert.

For the first 15 years of my life, I resisted the idea of a cake for my birthday, opting instead for the rich chocolaty coconutty goodness of chocolate haupia pie.

Oh, the flaky crust, the fudge-y chocolate pudding filling, the haupia rendered rich and creamy, and the whipped cream topping! Having chocolate haupia pie was as exciting as the first day of summer vacation.

In Hawaii, you can order chocolate haupia pie at a variety of locations, including your favorite, Dinah: the open-24-hours-a-day coffee shop Anna Miller's Restaurant in Aiea on Oahu. One of Hawaii's longstanding favorite purveyors of the pie, however, is Ted's Bakery, on the drive to Oahu's famed North Shore surf spots.

Ted's is a great place to stop for a local-style plate lunch and a slice of fresh-made pie before a day at the beaches. Chocolate haupia is just one of several varieties of pies baked up daily at Ted's. Oahu-based Times Supermarkets also stocks Ted's Bakery pies and other brands of chocolate haupia pie to satisfy the sweet tooths of folks who can't make it to the North Shore.

We couldn't procure Anna Miller's chocolate haupia pie recipe for you, Dinah … or Ted's Bakery's recipe, for that matter. Both recipes are kept under lock and key. But give the chocolate haupia pie recipe we found (and modified a bit) a try and let us know if you think it compares.
