Mississippi Mud Pie

1

Hello everyone, I hope you are all well.

Yesterday I made this scrumptious Mississippi Mud Pie, a delicious oreo/pecan base covered with homemade chocolate pudding and topped with whipped cream and pecans…

So good!

Oreo/pecan base:

  • 1 packet Oreos
  • 2 1/2 oz. (75 g) pecans
  • 3 tablespoons (40 g) butter

Melt the butter and grind or finely crush the pecans and the oreos. Mix and stir until well blended.

Tip into a greased pie dish and press the mixture down and up the sides.

Place in the freezer for 15 minutes.

Bake the pie crust in a 350 ˚F (180 ˚C) oven for about 15 minutes, then leave to cool.

    Jag dreglar!! Perfekt dekoration med enkla naturella pecannötter ovanpå all den där chokladen! För frukost-inspiration, med något mindre choklad, klicka på min blogglänk! Den handlar om frukost, enbart frukost, varje dag:)

    Er det muligheter for å bruke noen annen nøtter enn pecan i denne oppskriften?

      Ja bare utelat det eller bruk peanøtter eller valnøtter rett og slett noe du liker

    Ser veldig god ut! Men kan man bruke annet enn bare kremfløte på toppen? Ikke så glad i ren kremfløte
