Baked Sunday Mornings - Mississippi Mud Pie



Hard to believe, but this is our last recipe from Baked Explorations.  I was flipping though it earlier today and realized that many of my favorite recipes are from this one book!  

Mississippi Mud Pie and I go way back.  All the way back to my first marriage more than twenty years ago (wow, that makes me sound and feel so old!).  My ex-husband and I lived within walking distance of the grocery store and we walked there often just to get these incredible frozen Mississippi Mud Pies made by Pepperidge Farm.  They had a crumbly chocolate cookie base, topped with a chocolate mousse filling and I'm pretty sure there was a layer of whipped cream.  They were awesome!  I think I cried a little when I they stopped making them.

This lovely little pie reminded me of those frozen treats and that time in my life while I was making and tasting it.  I don't do coffee flavored anything so I used just plain ol' chocolate ice cream.  I had planned on using some chocolate ice cream that I made last weekend but didn't have enough.  I also didn't use the recommended Nabisco cookies for the base.  I love them but just couldn't bring myself to spend almost $5 on a box and used chocolate animal crackers instead.

I love this.  It's a slice of chocolate heaven!  I actually like the bourbon here too.  I only used it in the fudge layer and loved the subtle flavor it added.  A great way to finish off a great cookbook!

Please visit Baked Sunday Mornings for the recipe and to see what the rest of our group did this week.
