Mississippi Mud Pie

Mississippi Mud Pie

This Mississippi Mud Pie is such a creamy and decadent dessert. I gain pounds just looking at it. This luscious dessert has a nutty crust, a cream cheese layer, then a chocolate pudding layer, topped with whipped topping, and a ton of pecans.

This pie is also known as Chocolate Lasagna in some places.  The name “Mississippi mud pie” is derived from the original dense cake that resembles the banks of the Mississippi River. Its earliest known reference in print is dated 1975. There are a ton of variations to this recipe and I opted to stay with the most traditional version.

A little history behind me making this pie, I owe it to my Aunt Maxine she use to always make this easy pie when we were growing up, and I actually don’t remember eating it at all. However, she prepared one for a family gathering and my husband fell in love with it. I think I started making this pie back in 2007 for him and unfortunately, I don’t make it too often…because it is super-rich.

Perhaps the best part of the pie “The Crust”!

Its S-O G-O-O-D! Are you ready to join the mud pie bandwagon? Omniley

Godiva Chocolate Bunny Cocktail

I’m sharing another cute hosting hack for Easter.  I recommend leaving these bunnies wrapped in the foil and using as table decor until you are ready to use on Easter day or whatever day your event is being held. I want to warn you these are hollow and will melt quickly. I lost one set in the car while shopping. I recommend bringing these home immediately or placing in an ice chest in the car if you have a long ride on a hot day.  This is the cutest drink and can be made kid-friendly as well. Happy Hosting.
