Mocha Mud Pie for my brithday

Now mud pie is my all time favorite dessert and I've had it right a couple of times (one being back home) but I find it's very hard to find a place that does it just right (to my standards at least, and I'm pretty picky when it comes to this!) so I decided for my birthday this year I was going to try and make it (I thought that would be a good idea now that I have an ice cream maker!).

I searched high and low for a good recipe but most of them weren't very good or sort of cheated using premade ice cream so I came up with my own, with a little help from here and here.

I couldn't be happier with how it turned out and I kid you not it's the best mud pie I have ever had! (And I'm not just saying that because I made it. I'd be honest if it sucked! ha ha)

It's pretty easy to make:
1) Make the crust, press down into 2 3'' spring form pan (I'm sure this would also be enough for a 6'' or a thinner cake in a 9'')

2) Make the ice cream and spread over crust
(I had some store bought hot fudge sauce that I put a spoonful of right in the middle of the crust before I poured the ice cream in. It was a nice treat to discover that when eating the cake after. I haven't found a good recipe yet to make it at home but at soon as I do you bet I'll be posting it!)

3) Set in freezer at least over night

Mocha Ice Cream
  • 1 cup whip cream
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 2-3 tablespoons instant coffee granules
  • 1/4 cup chocolate syrup


Combine ingredients. Stir until sugar and coffee granules dissolve. Freeze according to ice cream freezer's directions.

Chocolate Syrup
1 cup cocoa powder
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 dash salt
1 1/2 cups water
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Stir together.

Boil 2-5 minutes, stirring rapidly, until sauce begins to thicken.

This must be stored in the fridge.

13 Oreos
1 tbsp Butter

Take 13 oreos & 1 tbsp butter, grind up, smooth it out in the spring form pans

(The toppings are just whip cream and store bought caramel sauce)
