Mississippi Mud Pie

This amazing pie starts out with a delicious flaky crust filled with a delicious creamy, chocolaty filling then topped off with fresh whipped cream and chocolate shavings. Oh boy, cannot get any better then this pie. Perfect for dessert for the family, parties, church gatherings, etc. Anytime or anywhere everyone will love this amazing pie. After I found this recipe I have been making all of the time for my family and they love it, it will not last long.

  • Ingredients:

  • 1 store bought refrigerated pie crust 
  • 3 ounces semi-sweet chocolate, roughly chopped
  • 1/4 cup butter, diced
  • 3 tablespoons corn syrup
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • chocolate shavings for topping 
  1. Heat the oven to 350 degrees
  2. Using your fingers gently press the pie crust on the bottom and sides of a 9" pie pan with a removable bottom. Place in the refrigerator until ready to fill. 
  3. In a heatproof bowl set over a pot of simmering water (do not let the bowl touch the water) then add the chocolate, butter and corn syrup. With a spatula stir in the chocolate mixture and whisk until melted and smooth.
  4. Remove the bowl from the heat and stir in the sugar, vanilla and the eggs.
  5. Pour into the prepared pie pan.
  6. Bake in preheated oven for 40 minutes or until the filling is set.
  7. Remove from the oven and let cool completely on a wire rack. When you take the pie out of the oven the chocolate filling will be all puffed up. As it cools down, it will come down. Thats normal. Let sit at room temperature. Then place in the refrigerator. 
  8. Just before serving, whip the heavy cream in a large mixing bowl until form peaks form.
  9. With a spatula or offset spatula spread the cream evenly on top of the cooled chocolate layer and decorate with chocolate shavings.
  10. With a knife cut the pie into slices.
