Freezer Mud Pie Recipe

We enjoyed this pie while on a trip to California more than 20 years ago. I came home and developed my own recipe. It's always a hit!
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. + freezing YIELD:8 servings


  • 1-1/2 cups chocolate wafer crumbs
  • 1/3 cup butter, melted
  • 1 quart chocolate ice cream, softened
  • 1 quart coffee ice cream, softened
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 ounces unsweetened chocolate
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 can (5 ounces) evaporated milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 tablespoon sugar


  • 1. Preheat oven to 350°. In a small bowl, combine wafer crumbs and butter. Press onto the bottom and up the sides of an ungreased 9-in. deep-dish pie plate. Bake 10 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.
  • 2. In a large bowl, beat chocolate ice cream and coffee ice cream. Spoon into crust. Cover and freeze 8 hours or overnight.
  • 3. For chocolate sauce, in a small saucepan, melt butter and chocolate over low heat; stir until smooth. Stir in sugar, salt and evaporated milk. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Remove from heat; stir in vanilla. Set aside.
  • 4. Remove pie from the freezer 15 minutes before serving. In a small bowl, beat cream until it begins to thicken. Gradually add sugar; beat until soft peaks form. Serve with pie and chocolate sauce. Yield: 8 servings.
