Mud pie, sometimes know as "Mississippi Mud pie" is a popular restaurant desert, usually consisting of a chocolate cookie crumb crust overflowing with coffee ice cream, topped with caramel, whipped cream, and
nuts. For some reason it usuallly comes in HUGE pieces. It's pretty yummy stuff.
This is a technique for making a smaller version, whose prep time is about a minute. Much easier to make, easier to eat, and easier on your arteries and waistline...
