This Mississippi Mud Pie is so gooey, rich, and fudgy, we understand why David Venable said, "Dessert just doesn't get any better!" One slice into this brownie in a pie plate, and we bet you'll feel the same!

What You'll Need

  • 4 ounces 60% bittersweet chocolate, chopped
  • 1 ounce unsweetened chocolate, chopped
  • 7 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup milk chocolate morsels
  • 1 premade chocolate cookie pie crust (unbaked)
  • Whipped cream, chocolate shavings, and mini semisweet chocolate chips for garnish

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In the top of a double boiler over simmering water, melt together the bittersweet chocolate, unsweetened chocolate, and butter. Remove pan from heat.
  3. Place sugar in a bowl and using a spatula, add the melted chocolate mixture and mix well. Mix in the eggs, one at a time, making sure each egg is well combined before adding the next one. Stir in the vanilla and salt. Gradually mix in the flour, a little at a time, until well combined. Fold in the milk chocolate morsels. Pour filling into crust.
  4. Bake 30 to 35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out almost clean. Let pie cool completely on a wire rack. Garnish with whipped cream, chocolate shavings, and mini chocolate chips.

where would you buy an "unbaked" chocolate cookie pie crust?

Hello! - You can find these in the baking aisle next to the graham cracker crusts. Oreo makes a chocolate crust. :)
