Hawaiian Chocolate Haupia Pie

Have you ever had haupia pie before? I never had this kind of pie before, but not until my BIL invited us for a going-away dinner at their house last week, and he made us a haupia pie for dessert. My BIL's wife is half Hawaiian and half Japanese. Haupia pie is a classic Hawaiian coconut pudding type dessert. You should try it! It's delicious!
List of Ingredients

* 1 9-inch prepared pie crust
* 7 ounces semi-sweet chocolate
* 1-1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
* 1/4 cup sugar
* sliced strawberries, for garnish

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


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bake crust until golden, 15 to 20 minutes.
2. Meanwhile, make haupia: Whisk coconut milk, milk and sugar together in a small saucepan.
3. In a separate bowl, dissolve cornstarch in water.
4. Bring coconut milk mixture to a boil, then reduce to a simmer and whisk in cornstarch mixture, whisking until thickened.
5. Microwave chocolate pieces on high 1 minute; stir to melt completely.
6. Pour half the haupia into a bowl.
7. Mix remaining haupia with melted chocolate and pour over the bottom of the baked pie crust.
8. Layer white haupia over the top.
9. Cool pie at least 1 hour in refrigerator.
10. Whip cream with 1/4 cup sugar until still peaks form.
11. Garnish pie with whipped cream and strawberry. Chill another hour.
