thick coconut milk
Pour the coconut milk into a saucepan and heat on medium heat.
Meanwhile, mix the sugar and cornstarch in a bowl and add the water. Whisk until everything is smooth and homogenous.
When the coconut milk starts to simmer, add the mixture from the bowl.
On low-medium heat, continue to whisk until the mixture thickens and begins to appear slightly translucent. It should take about 10 minutes.
Pour the mixture into an 8-inch square mold.
Allow to cool before refrigerating for at least 4 hours, or until obtaining a semi-solid consistency.
Cut the haupia into squares of about 2 inches and serve.
