Mississippi Mud Pie

My sister had a batch of brownies in her freezer and she thought up the idea of making a brownie-bottom Mississippi Mud Pie.

I married that idea with the pudding mixture from my notorious icebox desserts, and here’s what I came up with!

Crumble up about half of the brownies and lightly press onto the bottom of a 9X13 pan.

Make the lightened pudding mixture, but this time, mix in 1 heaping tablespoon of instant coffee granules into the milk (more or less depending on your love of coffee).

Use the entire tub of whipped topping, not just half.

Spread half of this mixture on top of the brownies.

Repeat the brownie and pudding layer.

Top with a generous drizzle of chocolate syrup or ganache. I used Hersheys Special Dark Chocolate syrup. .. and I had a few brownie crumbs left in the baggie, so I threw those on top too.

Cover and freeze for at least 3 hours.

Remove from freezer and cut into squares with a knife. Don’t worry, it won’t freeze hard.

Perfect dessert for warm weather!! Enjoy!

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Brownies

Yea, that’s right…I said Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Brownies!! The best friend’s birthday was coming up and I wanted to bake her something so yummy that she would forget that she was turning 27.

I got the recipe from the Betty Crocker website. I have this Betty Crocker Recipe of the Day gadget on my iGoogle homepage. I LOVE it.

The recipe was so insanely easy…

Make brownie mix and cookie mix as directed on the package.

I buttered the pan and dusted with cocoa powder for anti-sticking insurance!

Drop the cookie dough onto the brownie batter and press it in a little bit. The picture below shows perfect little rows of cookie blobs, but in fact, I still had more cookie dough, so I had to plop it in more randomly…

Let it cool completely. Then put on the icing!!

Cut into squares and ENJOY!

While I was cutting the brownie squares, one of them looked too rectangular, so I was forced to cut off a piece to even it out…and then I was forced to eat it for quality assurance purposes, of course.

Honestly, this was the BEST brownie I have ever eaten. It made me so happy, I was squealing with joy…really….squealing….
