Did you know that Mississippi Mud Pie is named after the muddy banks of the Mississippi river? Thankfully there's no real mud in this sinfully decadent dessert, just lots of ooey-gooey chocolate, nuts, and ice cream!

What You'll Need

  • 1 quart of your favorite ice cream, softened to spreading consistency (coffee is the traditional flavor)
  • 1 prepared 9-inch chocolate-flavored pie crust
  • 1 (8-ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • Chocolate syrup for drizzling
  • Chopped nuts for sprinkling (optional)

What to Do

  1. Spoon softened ice cream into pie crust. Freeze until firm, about 2 hours.
  2. Top with whipped topping, drizzle with chocolate syrup and chopped nuts, if desired. Freeze until solid, about 1 hour.
  3. Slice and serve, or keep frozen until ready to use. Allow to thaw 5 to 10 minutes for easier slicing.


To soften the ice cream, break it up in a bowl and stir with a wooden spoon. Do not let the ice cream reach the melting point.

This is a great recipe. Super simple and delicious! I also use a little caramel as well as the chocolate syrup for drizzling. I don't use Cool Whip, because it's not available in The Netherlands, but homemade is best. I put the whipped cream on each individual piece before serving. There is NEVER any left over, even when I make 2 pies!

This is a 'WOLNDERBAR' rescipe...One of the best I have had.
