Six Layer Mississippi Mud Pie with Strawberry Mousse

Chocolate is indulgent and rich. Strawberries are sweet and fruity. If you simply cannot decide whether to make a strawberry recipe or a chocolate recipe, what about a compromise? There are several pie recipes combining both strawberry and chocolate, which are great for the times you simply cannot decide which one to choose. Layered dessert recipes are not just for gelatin. You can layer puddings too, for a stripy effect and to mix the flavors up.

The following Mississippi mud pie recipe combines both chocolate and strawberry pudding with a chocolate piecrust and chocolate flavored condensed milk. Some crunchy pecans finish this delicious Mississippi mud pie recipe off nicely. This is a dessert, which will be popular with the kids and also with adults because of the sweet flavor and the combination of soft layers and crunchy bits.

The gooey layers will all melt into one another but the piecrust contains them, so do not be surprised if the chocolate or strawberry pudding layers get a bit messy when you serve this mud pie recipe. It will still taste great. You might like to freeze it for an hour before serving it, for a slightly firmer texture.
