Mississippi Mud Pie

Mississippi Mud Pie with an oreo crust, two layers of chocolate, and a cool and creamy whipped topping. This no-bake icebox pie is impossible to resist.

Mississippi Mud Pie

Did you make mud pies as a child? As in actual mud.

I loved to. Layer after layer of dirt, mud, and sand, varying in consistency. At least one layer had to be really gloppy, runny mud. After the layering came the decorating. Sticks poking out on top, flowers and berries for color. Maybe a few acorns.

With all the cell phones, video games, and iPads, I wonder if kids ever make mud pies anymore.

Now that I’m older, I’ve traded dirt for chocolate to make my mud pies.

Mississippi Mud Pie is layer after layer of chocolate goodness.

It all starts with an easy no-bake oreo crust followed by a fudgy and rich layer made from melted chocolate and sweetened condensed milk. Then comes a sprinkling of toasted pecans and a creamy, thick layer of chocolate pudding. To finish it all off, a nice coating of whipped topping.

Super easy and super delicious. This pie is pure chocolate heaven. Don’t expect any leftovers.

Because it is no-bake and it’s served cold, Mud Pies are perfect desserts for scorching hot days.

We have months of hot weather coming our way, and hopefully months of Mud Pies too.

Mississippi Mud Pie

A rich and creamy no-bake chocolate pie covered with a layer of whipped topping.
PREP: 1 hour 30 minutes
TOTAL: 1 hour 30 minutes


  • 22 oreo cookies
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 4 oz semisweet chocolate, melted
  • 1/4 cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans
  • 1 (5.9-ounce) package instant chocolate pudding mix
  • 2 cups 2% milk
  • 1 (8-ounce) tub frozen whipped topping, divided


  • Place oreos in a food processor and process until finely ground. Place in a medium bowl and mix together with melted butter. Spoon into a 9-inch pie plate. Use your hands or the back of a wooden spoon to spread evenly. Press down firmly on crust. This will help it hold together. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
  • In a small heavy-bottomed saucepan, melt chocolate. Remove from heat and stir in condensed milk.
  • Pour on top of pie crust. Sprinkle pecans on top.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together pudding mix and milk for 1 minute. Fold 1/2 cup whipped topping into pudding mixture. Pour on top of pecans.
  • Top with remaining whipped topping. Refrigerate until set.

    This is delicious!! The first time I made 2 pies exactly the way it was written and took it to my bible study and with 10 people who had some I brought one 1/8 of a pie slice home.

    The second time after doing a little research with a test recipe in my cookbook (Now Your Cooking) and checking amounts and nutrition, I replaced the 4 oz of semisweet chocolate and 1/4 cup of sweetened condensed milk with 6 oz of semisweet chocolate chips and 1/2 cup of half and half. This made the first chocolate layer a little thicker and added only 10 calories for each of the 8 servings.

  2. Do you put the whole Oreo cookie in the food processor or just the cookies & remove the white creme between the cookies?

  3. This is the best recipe for Mississippi Mud Pie! Other recipes were runny. This sets up fast and well! Is a hit with my husband.

    Instead of whipped cream, add 4 oz of cream cheese. Really firms up the pie and cuts the super sweet taste while making it creamy!

      So happy you enjoyed it Maurilla! Chocolate Pie can definitely sweeten up Fathers Day 🙂

  7. Looks and sounds really good. Thinking of taking this to my churches Campmeeting next month…But i think it’s my duty to make one before just to make sure it’s ok… 😉

  8. Your pie looks divine!! I love anything that is rich and chocolate, but this also looks like a good dessert for a summer night with all the whipped cream! Thanks for sharing!

  9. Absolutely the BEST mudpie I have ever tasted! I had to substitute the cooked version of pudding but I think that just made it thicker and richer on top. It’s to die for and I will be taking the recipe with me on an upcoming RV trip. I’m quite sure that one glimpse of this lovely dessert and my RV neighbors will bring out their forks!

      I’m so happy you enjoyed it! Now I want to make another one and try using cooked pudding! I am sure you will make lots of friends on your RV trip. I’ve always wanted to do one of those. Sounds like so much fun! Have a great weekend 🙂
