Mississippi Mud Pie

I struggled to find a definitive recipe for Mississippi Mud Pie, so came up with this.  One thing that all of the recipes I found had in common – they’re going to lead you to an early grave.  Not really a dessert for anyone on a diet, or with a heart condition…

Try replacing the digestives with chocolate digestives, bourbons or ginger biscuits in the future…

Serves: 8


  • 300g Digestive Biscuits
  • 150g Butter
  • 200g good quality (70%+) Dark Chocolate
  • 2 tsp Coffee granules
  • 200g Marshmallows
  • 500 ml Double Cream
  • 4 tbsp Dark Rum


  • Place the biscuits in a strong plastic bag and crush with a rolling pin
  • Melt the butter in a pan and add the biscuit crumbs.  Mix well and tip into a deep 22 cm loose bottomed flan tin.  Using a flat bottomed class or mug, push the crumb mixture down to form a compacted, but even layer.  Place in the fridge to cool
  • Dissolve the coffee granules in a little boiling water and chop up the chocolate.  Add both to a large glass bowl, along with the marshmallows and a splash of the cream. Stir briefly
  • Place in the microwave and heat through until the chocolate and marshmallows have melted. Remove every 15-20 seconds to stir.  Once melted, remove from the microwave and stir in the rum
  • Whisk the remaining cream until it forms soft peaks and fold into the chocolate mixture
  • Spoon the mixture onto the biscuit base and return to the fridge until set – ideally overnight
