Figured I would make this early treat for a party. It went over so well I showed my friends how easy it is by making another one during the party for a special dessert. Two in one, not bad.

This was a great pie. It was so funny, when I told my husband what I was making, he said "Oh Boy, I used to make them as a kid". (The real kind of mud pies of course). The was a very easy recipe to follow. My son ate it up. Definitely will be making it again.
