The southern United States has given us some of the best desserts in the world. One of the most beloved recipes is for traditional Mississippi mud pie, thanks to its rich chocolate filling and crust. Some like to add a layer of thick homemade whipped cream on top, while others let the chocolate shine on its own. Most who partake in a slice (or three) of Mississippi mud pie usually do so with a nice big scoop of vanilla ice cream on the side.
There’s really no wrong way to eat this southern classic. Still, there’s plenty of different ways to make it. Although recipes sometimes vary from family to family, this one from Waitrose TV is simple, easy and incredible delicious.
Although the finish product looks impressive, the cooking process is pretty straightforward. Plus, it’s a great dessert to impress your family with during the holidays. Believe me, they are coming sooner than you think.
Even if you aren’t from Mississippi, the state’s most famous pie can be enjoyed by anyone. Just make sure you have a light dinner beforehand. Or, just follow my lead and throw on some stretch pants and get to chowing down.
