Mississippi Mud Pie is a very delicious dessert pie that is made by using gooey chocolate. As the name suggests, this dessert originated in Mississippi, a popular state of United States. This complete chocolate-based dessert contains flaky chocolate on the top and thick chocolate sauce in the middle. Usually served with plain chilled ice cream, this pie is widely appreciated all across the globe for the rich use of chocolate.

While Mississippi mud pie was originally associated with Southern United States cuisine, the dish has gained somewhat of an international reputation, owing in large part to the sheer amount of chocolate in each serving.

Some think Mississippi mud pie is a 1970s reincarnation of Mississippi mud cake, which appeared in the World War II era. Thrifty women on the homefront might have developed the mud cake recipe in their search for ways to make desserts with cheap ingredients already available in their scanty wartime pantries.

The name Mississippi mud pie, derives from the pie’s appearance, which could remind casual observers of Mississippi River mud. Out of the oven, this dense chocolate dessert looks like Mississippi River clay that the sun has parched, crusted, and cracked.Its earliest known reference in print is dated 1975.
