    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!!!

  3. This recipe is confusing… it doesn’t state where to add the cup of milk and the ingredients aren’t in the order that they are listed or used. I am guessing that it’s just added to the first pudding mix. I’ll be consulting other cookbooks to see how they make it to compare, but I’d like to try this with the great reviews it’s received.
