Mississippi Mud Pie The Ultimate Dessert

Mississippi Mud Pie most likely originated in the state of Mississippi and you will find many cafes and restaurants in Mississippi serving the delicious Mississippi Mud Pie. But here we are going to take it to a whole new level that not even Mississippi Mud Pie has reached before.

While I was working at the Hogs Breathe Cafe in Key West in the late 1990s I was asked to create an ultimate dessert to be served during Fantasy Fest. For about a week I thought about it and then I decided to build a dessert based on one of my favorite desserts of all time. And that dessert was the Mississippi Mud Pie. And I took it to a whole new level and made it into the Ultimate Mississippi Mud Pie. The finished product that you end up with is the best tasting chocolate dessert in the world. Make it and see what you think.

And while a regular Mississippi Mud Pie or Cake is a ultimate dessert in its self I wanted to take the dessert I created to a whole new level of gastronomic delight. Me and my Mom had both always loved Oreo cookies so I thought I would build my take on the Mississippi Mud Pie on a base of Oreo cookies.

While this dessert is a little involved in its making I promise you that it will be loved by everyone that tries it. First we will make the Mississippi Bar Cookie that is the center of our Mississippi Mud Pie.

Mississippi Bar Cookie ( Really More Like A Brownie )

We are going to make a 13" X 9" baking pan of these delicious bar cookies. You will want to start by taking about sixteen full size Oreo cookies and run them through a food processor until you have them ground very fine. You will want to do them in a food processor and after the Oreo cookies are ground very fine add four ounces of softened cream cheese to the Oreo cookie crumbs and mix it up until everything is well mixed.

Line your baking pan with a piece of the new baking paper with tin foil on one side and parchment paper on the other side. Put the baking paper in the baking pan with the parchment paper side up and then spray your baking pan very well with vegetable cooking oil including the sides. This way your Mississippi Bar Cookies will come out of the pan easily.You want to take a spoon and put the Oreo mixture into the bottom of the baking pan. Be sure to smooth the layer out with the back of your spoon.

How To Make Mississippi Bar Cookies

Now you want to mix up a box of Duncan Hines Supreme Brownie Mix with Chocolate Chunks by the package directions and put it in on top of the layer of Oreo Cookie Crumb mixture in the bottom of your baking pan. Now bake your Mississippi Bar Cookies according to the time listed on the brownie box. But take them out of the oven a little under cooked. You can tell when this happens by watching the brownies until you think they are about done and test them in the very center of the pan with a toothpick. You should still have a little brownie mix clinging to the tooth pick but the top of the brownies should feel firm. If you can get that just right you will be on your way to greatness.

Set the pan of brownies to the side and let them cool to room temperature. You can now cut your Mississippi Bar Cookies up into generous squares.

In a small crock pot you will want to heat a large can of Hershey's Chocolate Syrup until it is hot and then turn it down to the keep warm setting. If your going to be putting together a lot of these Mississippi Mud Pies you may want to heat two cans of the chocolate syrup.

You need a large jar of the marshmallow creme.

You will also want to have vanilla ice cream, cool whip, and maraschino cherries.

When your ready to put together one of your Mississippi Mud Pies you will need microwave safe dishes and you will want to take a square of your Mississippi Mud Bar Cookies and split in in half cross ways so you have two pieces. Put the bottom half on the microwave safe dish and then put a tablespoon of marshmallow creme on top of the bar cookie and put the other half on top. Now microwave for one minute.

You now want to take it out of the microwave and put a big scoop of vanilla ice cream on top and then put a big ladle of hot chocolate syrup over the top of the ice cream. Put cool whip on top of that and top with a maraschino cherry.

You just made the Ultimate Mississippi Mud Pie and I bet that once you taste it that you'll agree that you have just created the ultimate chocolate dessert of all time. I have never made one for anyone that didn't tell me that it was the best thing they ever tasted. It really is the Ultimate Mississippi Mud Pie.

I know I would choose it any day of the week over regular Mississippi Mud Pie. To me its the Mississippi Mud Pie Bar Cookie that is the center piece of this dessert and the Oreo Cookie layer just adds a lot of magic to this dessert.

You want to make sure that you slightly undercook your brownies so they are still a little gooey in the center of the pan. If you can cook them just this way you'll truly end up with the Ultimate Mississippi Mud Pie.

And like I said once you taste it you'll go crazy. You just may find yourself up at 4 A.M. making this oh so delicious dessert. Mississippi mud pie or cake is said to be one of the richest ever desserts and if you make it as I described above you'll find it's one of the richest most delicious desserts you'll ever taste.

History Of The Mississippi Mud Pie Or Cake

The very first Mississippi Mud Pie or Cake was most likely made in the area of Greenville Mississippi and from there the popular dessert spread all over the world.
