Mud Pie Mousse

Sometimes one dessert isn’t enough. Sometimes you want to mix things up, literally. And what better recipes to mix up other than the delicious Mississippi mud pie and a silky smooth chocolate mousse. It’s not crazy hard or time consuming either, like a cake+cheesecake, or blondes (cookie+brownie). It’s just a matter of having the right ingredients, the willingness to create something awesome, and 3 mixing bowls.

Here’s what you’ll need for a medium sized dish

1 1/2 cups crushed oreos +2 T melted butter

1 cup + 2 T dark chocolate, chopped

4 T marshmallow fluff (or microwave 4 marshmallows until they melt)

2 T water

1/2 cup smooth peanut butter

2 cups chilled whipping cream

1 cup icing sugar

1/2 t vanilla extract

Press the buttered Oreo crumbs into the bottom of a medium sized dish.

In a large bowl whip the cream, gradually adding the icing sugar, until it forms soft peaks. Place the peanut butter in a medium microwave proof bowl and microwave it for 20 ¬†seconds. Mix the peanut butter with a spatula until it’s smooth, then fold in 1/3 of the whipped cream and set aside.

Place 1 cup of the chopped chocolate, marshmallow fluff and water in a microwave proof bowl and microwave for 20 seconds at a time until everything’s melted. Loosen the chocolate mixture by mixing in a dollop of whipped cream. Then add half of the remaining whipped cream and fold until mixed, but some chocolate ribbons are still showing through.

Spread the chocolate mixture over the Oreo crust, then the peanut butter mixture, then top off with the remaining whipped cream and chopped chocolate. Chill for at least 2 hours before serving.

I don’t have any pictures but i’ll be uploading them soon! And try this recipe. It’s simple to make but the combination and balance of flavors is just perfect.
