Mud Pie from Disney's Princess Tiana

My girls bought me this wonderful cookbook for Christmas The Princess and the Frog: Tiana's Cookbook: Recipes for Kids (Disney Princess: the Princess and the Frog) (Hardcover). We have been wanting to cook out of it ever since. We tried one of the recipes (didn't go too well), but we didn't want to give up, so this weekend we made two more things from the book and LOVED both of them! Here is the first recipe and then we will be sharing the Berry Cobbler very soon!

Mud Pie

1 1/4 cups of crushed graham crackers (we used pre-crushed)
6 tbsp melted butter
1 quart Chocolate Chocolate Chip Ice Cream
1/2 cup chocolate fudge topping
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 tub Cool Whip
2 tbsp powdered hot cocoa mix

Stir 1 cup of the crushed graham crackers into the melted butter. Pour into a 9" pie pan. After the crumbs have cooled, press them against the bottom and the sides of the pan to form the pie crust. Freeze the crust for 20 minutes.

Remove ice cream from freezer and let thaw, almost completely. Stir the "extra" chocolate chips into the ice cream then scoop the ice cream into the pie crust and spread evenly. Dig about 8 holes in the ice cream and fill each with a tbsp of fudge-topping. Re-freeze for another 20 minutes. Stir the Cool Whip with the powdered hot cocoa mix and then spread over the pie, then sprinkle on the remaining cracker crumbs. Wrap the pie in plastic and freeze it for 3 to 4 hours before serving.

My girls are TRUE Disney fans! They would live at Disneyland if they could! They LOVE it, and of course living only 20 minutes away we have annual passes and it is their favorite past time of all. And this summer it is their life-long dream to dance and or at least work at Disney, they will be 18 years old this year and will finally be able to apply to work at Disneyland!

It's the WEEKEND, a great time for any kind of PARTY including Linky Parties! Today, we will link this recipe to: Check Me Out SaturdayShow and Tell Saturdays, Sweets for Saturday, Spotlight SaturdaySaturday Spotlight


  1. Wow, this sounds really, really good! I'm so going to have to try this! Thanks!

  2. I'm so excited about this! My daughter's 4th Birthday party is this weekend, and I was looking to find a great MudPie that we can make into cupcakes. I think this is the one :) thanks! Casey
