Flaky pie crust, incredible rich chocolate layer and light whipped cream make this Mississippi mud pie quite impossible for anyone to resist it.
Mud pies always make me think of childhood. Layers upon layers of mud and dirt. Sometimes sand or mulch. Little sticks, flowers and leaves were part of the decorations. The more the prettier.
Except jumping in the puddles, making mud pies was our favorite activity after the rain. The last time I made a mud pie was probably more than 20 years ago. Time sure fly, doesn’t it?
The first time I heard about Mississippi mud pie was few years ago when I came to US. I have to admit, I was quite skeptical when I heard the name. My mind travelled quickly back in time.
Now, that I actually made a Mississippi mud pie I’m pretty sure I’ll never go back to the mud pies from my childhood. Mississippi mud pie as I’m sure most of you know, consists of a rich layer of chocolate and topped with a generous amount of whipped cream.
I’ve actually seen quite a few variation of the dessert. Some recipes have a chocolate, mostly crushed Oreos, crust. Others have a layer of chocolate pudding added to it. Some are just for grown ups since they call for bourbon. Either way, Mississippi mud pie is pretty much a chocolate and cream pie.
2 layers, 3 layers. Chocolate crust or nor, pair rich chocolate with whipped cream and you have an irresistible dessert.
Speaking of chocolate and cream, in case you didn’t guess it already – it’s time for another chocolate party!
Heavy cream is this month secret ingredient!
New to the chocolate party? Welcome! Happy to have you here. I hope you’ll join us. Here’s how
Each month I, along with some wonderful and very talented blogger friends, decide upon a secret ingredient to use in our chocolate sweets.
Our recipes will be shared on the first Monday of each month and you can add your own recipes until the end of the month when the party is over and a new one is opened. You can submit up to 3 recipes each month.
To make sure everyone is having fun, there are a few rules you’ll have to follow.
1.) Blog about your chocolate treat. Your recipe must include the two ingredients we choose. It can be a simple no-bake treat or a sophisticated layer cake, the complexity level of the recipe is totally up to you.
2.) Include a link back to a monthly round-up or the Chocolate party page. Optional, add the Chocolate Party logo in your blog post or on your sidebar.
3.) Your recipe must be published during the current month. Please do not link old recipes.
