    Yours is the only version I’ve seen with the haupia on the bottom, which us how I make mine… but I go super easy and use frozen pue crust, Jello cooked chocolate pudding on top of Noh mix haupia, since the Noh sets up faster than tge pudding! I’ll try yours if I ever decide that I want more ‘homemade’.

    I have made this recipe many, many times. It is relatively simple and tastes amazing. I always get rave reviews from anyone who eats it. One of my friends even had me make one for her sons birthday cake because he liked it so much! It’s a fan favorite for my family and friends. And I usually make it if I need to bring a dessert to a function. FANTASTIC!!!
