Club: Baked - Mississippi Mud Pie

One of my new goals for myself this year: bake with my groups more often! I really don't know why I don't do it more often as it seems more often than not the recipes we make are amazingly delicious. This one being no exception...

This time around, our Club:Baked recipe is hosted by Jess at The Saucy Kitchen. Her choice: Mississippi Mud Pie. I feel like I say this a lot, but without this group, I never would have given this pie a chance. Me. Dark chocolate and coffee? Na... give me some caramel and milk chocolate, and I'm a happy girl :)
Nonetheless, both my husband and I found ourselves really enjoying this pie. I made a half version in a little 5-inch pie tin since it was just the 2 of us, and everything seemed to come together really well. There are a lot of steps in this recipe, but most of it is melt, freeze, repeat. I am thinking that this pie could be the perfect solution for when I need a dessert in the middle of the summer. The no-bake factor certainly wins points in the Phoenix summers category. A couple people mentioned on the message board that they had trouble finding chocolate wafers. I have some leftover chocolate animal crackers from when my brother made this cheesecake, and they seemed to work just fine here.
Stop by the Club: Baked page today to check out the pies from the other bloggers, and be sure to stop by Jess's blog for hosting! Enjoy!

  2. Thanks for baking along with me. I'm glad you enjoyed it. The no back factor will certainly be a benefit in the summer (I feel your pain as we're in Vegas).

  4. I decided to pass this week but reading you post makes me wish I'd made this. Maybe this summer when it's warm and we need a cool dessert. Yours looks delicious.

  6. I love being in a baking group because I'm trying so many recipes I would normally pass up...like this one. So glad I made it and look forward to trying out different flavor combinations. Glad to hear this was a hit at your house too! Your mini pie looks great.

  8. I love that you made a smaller pie. I ended up bringing it to a meeting otherwise I would have tried to do something a bit smaller since we are trying to "eat better." This was so tasty!
