"This delicious crust is made with flour, chopped walnuts and butter, pressed into a 9-inch pie tin, and baked till lightly golden. It 's then filled with chocolate pudding that is then smothered with a sweetened whipped cream and cream cheese frosting." — Tracy

instant chocolate pudding mix
1 (8 ounce) package

I used to make this with my grandmother when I was a kid. I love it. But we used cool whip insted of the whipping cream, and made the chocolate layer into 2 layers, under and over the cream cheese one, then added coolwhip on top. So rich.
This was just okay. A little bland. I probably will not make it again.
This recipe was pretty easy, and yummy. If you are inexperienced with whipping cream (as I was) make sure that you buy unpasteurized, unhomogenized whipping cream. It is easier to whip than pasteurized or pasteurized & homogenized. Try to make sure the cream is very cold when you start to whip it, and keep it as cold as possible while whipping it. When it is too warm it churns (like making butter) instead of whips. Good luck.
I love this recipie it's quick and easy.My mom calls this a 4 layer pie and makes a variation on it instead of walnuts she uses pecans.
This is the real Mississippi Mud Pie I know.
I need a sugar free dessert for this weekend for an event, so I modified this and made it tonight as a trial run. It is probably the best sugar free dessert I have ever made.. here's what I did: I used sugar free instant pudding and instead of conf sugar I used sucralose granular (Splenda) Since the cream cheese and splenda was a little "thick" w/o conf sugar consistancy I added some extra whipped cream to the mixture. I also had to use a little extra flour in the crust to get the right consistancy and I did not have walnuts, so used pecans instead. It was DELICIOUS! If you like to try to lighten up desserts as we do, try this modified version and I am sure you will love it!
Most excellent and very easy to make. Highly recommend this one. I didn't/wouldn't change a thing.
We used a gram crust. This pie turned out absolutely gorgeous and was a huge Thanksgiving hit! This is THE BESET MUD PIE ever, top with whip cream and mini chocolate chips. Delish!
