This may come as a surprise to some, but according to Wikipedia, Mississippi Mud Pie was not created in Mississippi. It's actually from California. Rumor is that the name came from the fact that the brown crust of the pie resembles the brown banks of the Mississippi River. Where ever it came from it is sinfully delicious.
There are many versions of Mississippi Mud Pie but this is our favorite. The chocolate goodness of this decadent treat with it's crunchy crust is unbelievable yummy.
