Mississippi Mud Pie is outrageously delicious! A chocolate crumb crust layered with a rich chocolate sauce, crunchy nuts and creamy coffee ice cream. This is a dessert to remember.


  • 1 prepared 9-inch (6 oz.) chocolate crumb crust
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 cup (6 oz.) NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter or margarine, cut up
  • 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 tablespoons light corn syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup chopped nuts, divided (optional)
  • 2 pints coffee ice cream, softened slightly, divided
  • Whipped cream (optional)


HEAT sugar, morsels, butter, cream and corn syrup in small, heavy-duty saucepan over low heat, stirring constantly, until butter is melted and mixture is smooth. Remove from heat. Stir in vanilla extract. Cool until slightly warm.

DRIZZLE 1/3 cup chocolate mixture in bottom of crust; sprinkle with 1/4 cup nuts. Layer 1 pint ice cream, scooping thin slices with a large spoon; freeze for 1 hour. Repeat with 1/3 cup chocolate mixture, 1/4 cup nuts and remaining ice cream. Drizzle with remaining chocolate mixture; top with remaining nuts. Freeze for 2 hours or until firm. Top with whipped cream before serving.

This pie was very good. My children loved it. Be careful though a little goes a long way. It is definitely a quick fix for the sweet tooth!

This is excellent even for special occassions. We used decaffinated coffee because of kids eating it too and for the diabetic members in the family we used others substitutes for any types of sugars.

Couldn't ask for anything finer except for crust made from scratch. I tried it and loved it even more that way.
