Kathi's Ode to Almond Joy Haupia Pie

I hope you enjoy my version of this traditional coconut milk-based Hawaiian dessert, which is often found at luaus and other local gatherings in Hawai'i. Key differences include a dark chocolate layer of coconut-flavored gelled-pudding (in addition to the regular white layer), and almond flavored whipped topping. So easy to make and like the recipe says, BEST IF REFRIGERATED OVERNIGHT to let the layers set up and the flavors develop - in the words of Alton Brown: "Your patience will be rewarded!" (This pie also freezes well - I would say easily keeps for 6 months in the freezer. If you want to make more than one at a time, use regular 8" instead of deep dish pie shells, and then split the coconut mixture and chocolate coconut mixture each into equal halves after step 12 & proceed w/the rest of the steps for each pie shell. You will then have one to share, and a spare!)
