Some things just go well together. Like knickers and argyle socks . . . 80’s power ballads and big hair . . . purple eye shadow and a bi-level haircut. (Can you guess which era I grew up in?) Ok, maybe not the best way to sell you on this recipe, but seriously, this mud pie is definitely an example of things coming together beautifully . . . ingredients meant to be together, made for each other if you will. My mom made this dessert for my high school graduation celebration dinner, and I will never forget staying up all night to celebrate, lip synching to the Beach Boys, strumming my badminton racquet (guitar), and then having another piece of mud pie for breakfast before going to bed. Ahhhh, good times. I hope this mud pie becomes part of some good memories for you too. It’s wicked awesome!!
