Mud Pie Mississippi Style

All Night

When you are doing something you love it is okay to do it all night.  It is allowed.  I was having a stressful day and I wanted to cook something with chocolate in so I could taste it as I was cooking and not feel guilty.  I couldn’t give a rass! I was stressed and I wanted to have some naughty fun.  This is a very rich dessert.  It tastes fabulous and I put rum in it.

This recipe was adapted from Mary Berry’s Baking Bible (BBC Books, 2009).
