Hula Pie

Hula pie is a favorite among those who live and visit in Hawaii. Kimo's, a popular restaurant in Lahaina, Maui and Dukes's restaurant on Waikiki Beach are well known for this dessert. It requires no baking and easy to prepare.
Hula Pie
  • 1-9 inch chocolate cookie crumb crust (either a purchased one or one made with Oreo cookies)
  • 1 half gallon macadamia nut ice cream (use quart size ice cream for a pie not as high)
  • 1 jar (12 oz) hot fudge ice cream topping
  • 1 container cool whip or 2 cups whipped cream (whipped)
  • 1 shot of espresso or very strong coffee
  • 6 oz. macadamia nuts-chopped
  • Bring fudge topping to room temperature
  • Scoop ice cream into prepared pie shell
  • Warm espresso or coffee and mix into fudge topping optional add 2-3 TB Kahlua
  • Freeze until ready to serve
  • Cover top of pie with whipped cream to serve and sprinkle chopped macadamia nuts and toasted coconut on top
Note: If unable to find macadamia nut ice cream in your local store substitute good vanilla ice cream. Just soften ice cream and mix in 1 1/2 cups chopped macadamia nuts
