Duke's Hula Pie Recipe (Copycat)

This Hula Pie is just like the original from Duke's without the expensive flight to the islands! It's like having a little slice of Hawaii in your home.

  • Kitchenaid Mixer



  • Prepare Oreo pie crust and place in freezer.
  • Remove ice cream from freezer and allow to soften for 10-15 minutes. You do NOT want it to melt so keep a close eye on it. 
  • When the ice cream has softened enough to remove from the container, place it in a stand mixer bowl along with the dough hook attachment. 
  • Turn mixer to "low" and allow the ice cream to be mixed until it reaches a thick frozen yogurt consistency. Add coconut extract and macadamia nuts and mix for another minute or so. 
  • Find a mixing bowl where the rim will easily fit inside the Oreo pie crust (if using a 9" pie crust, find a bowl where the rim is under 9"-- remember you will be placing the bowl upside down inside the crust).
  • Line the bowl with plastic wrap, spray with cooking spray, and scoop ice cream into the bowl. Cover and freeze overnight. 
  • Remove ice cream and Oreo crust from freezer. Carefully place the bowl upside-down over the crust and pull at the plastic wrap until ice cream settles onto the crust. Remove bowl and plastic wrap from ice cream. 
  • Spoon fudge topping over the ice cream "dome" (do not heat the fudge-- you don't want it to melt the ice cream. If you must heat to soften, only do it for a few seconds until soft enough to remove from the container) and spread evenly until ice cream in covered in fudge. 
  • Freeze again until fudge becomes firm.
  • Remove from freezer and cut into slices. Top each slice with whipped cream, hot fudge (it's ok for this fudge to be hot), and macadamia nuts.
