This is an imitation of the real thing, which can be had at Duke's Canoe Club on Oahu. My family always makes it a point to grab a huge slice (each) of this! Adaptation from Lynn & Rick Carlton.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 ounces chocolate fudge topping
  • 1 gallon vanilla ice cream (vanilla bean works best)
  • 6 ounces macadamia nuts
  • 1 chocolate cookie pie crust


  1. Bring topping to room temperature.
  2. Crush macadamia nuts.
  3. Scoop ice cream into bowl and mix in crushed macadamia nuts.
  4. Scoop ice cream into pie shell, smoothing into mound (it needs to be a ridiculous 6-8" high at center).
  5. Warm a bit of milk and use it to dilute the chocolate topping, then use a warmed knife to spread chocolate topping over mounded ice cream.
  6. Place in freezer until ready to serve.
  7. HINT: Cover top of pie with whipped cream design before serving.

Having just returned from Kauai, were we fell in love with Duke's Hula Pie, I was happy to find this recipe. Hula Pie is as described in the recipe. To make the chocolate cookie pie crust, I used 2 1/2 cups of crushed Oreos mixed with 2 1/2 ounces of melted butter then pressed into a pie pan. Enjoy!
