The recipe itself looks very simple. I like simple...especially when it comes to a summer dessert. I hope this one is a keeper. (The recipe that is.) I am going to be substituting peanuts for the pecans, as one of my taste testers is allergic to nuts (but can eat peanuts...because peanuts aren't a nut...even though it clearly has a 'nut' in its name...yes peanut, I am judging you.....good day).
Okay, am back from the grocery store......and I've had success!!!
President's Choice (here in Canada) actually makes a coffee ice cream.
I saw that Haagen Dazs does too, but thought I'd stick with President's Choice, as I was impressed with their Salted Caramel ice cream. (Yes, salted caramel!!)
Time to get this ice cream pie made.
First the crust. It was as easy as...
The chocolate gets chopped up and put in a bowl. Then the cream, butter and syrup mixture was brought to a simmer on the stove.....and this was poured over the chopped chocolate. After a minute, I was able to whisk it all together.
The icing sugar and
Of course after making fudge, I have this commercial in my head. "It's that big chunk of fudge." That's normal, right?!
After everything was whisked together, I just had to pour the filling on top of the crust. Then to the fridge! (For 2 hours.) Waiting......
The ice cream is the next layer. It needs to be softened up a bit before I'm able to smooth it over the fudge filling.
Lastly, the fudge topping gets made. Much like the fudge filling, minus the icing sugar.
It is a thing of beauty. Can't wait for my taste testers to get here, so that we can dig in!!

The Mississippi Mud Pie was a hit. We all loved it. Hubbie thought it might be good with Peanut Butter ice cream too. I agree, the peanut butter ice cream with all that chocolate....yum!
I think it is a great treat to have during the dog days of summer. (Did you hear that girls I'm getting a dog....in the summer!) I'm not really, but don't tell them.
I highly recommend this pie. Head over the Baked Sunday Mornings to get the recipe and see how the rest of the Baked gang did this week.
