December 17, 2010 at 6:25 pm – Lauren: “SARAH…. I want mud pie. right now.
It’s almost been SEVEN YEARS since I first tried Cindy’s infamous mud pie, an event which forever changed my life. Plus, it was a reeeeally fun college night where my best friends from high school visited me and we went to a party in jewel tone togas.
Natalie, me, Katie, Sarah … we’re missing Vanessa :(
Ahh, memories. :)
So last month, after a tasty dinner at Cindy’s house and MINI banana split bites!!! for dessert, Cindy suggested that next month’s dinner be a birthday celebration for me and took requests. I immediately said mud pie because that’s one of my all-time favorites. I also suggested mushrooms, because anything with mushrooms rocks.
I was definitely spoiled last night with Mushrooms & Mud Pie!
Patriotic, summer table setting…
Fresh sunflowers and a blooming artichoke (love!)
Birthday presents! My own succulent terrarium!
Tasty peach sangria and spring salad with avocado dressing….
Chicken and rice with sauteed mushrooms and giant broccoli….
And then it was time.
Cindy, Mike, and Sarah sang Happy Birthday and then we dug in!
I literally sent that to 99% of my Snapchat friends because I was so excited haha.
Cindy, me, Sarah!
Do you want the recipe? Because back in 2009 I asked for it and I still have it on file (aka my old yahoo email address from 1998)
30 OREO’S crushed
1/3 cup melted butter
1 Jar Mrs. Richardson’s Chocolate Fudge Sauce
1/2 gallon Mocha Fudge Almond Ice Cream
3 Heath Toffee Bars crushed (if can’t find can use SKOR bars)
5 additional crushed OREO’S
1 9×13 disposable pan
- Mix 30 crushed Oreo’s with melted butter. Press evenly on botton of pan. Freeze until firm.
- Soften ice cream at room temperature. Spoon over frozen crust. Freeze until hard.
- Spoon fudge sauce evenly over ice cream. Sprinkle crushed Heath Bars evenly over top. Sprinkle
remaining 5 oreo’s over heath bars.
- Flash freeze if you are going to keep pie in freezer for a while.
- FLASH FREEZE DIRECTIONS: Put pie in freezer (unwrapped) until frozen through. Remove from freezer, wrap tightly in plastic wrap, cover with foil and return to freezer.
I will not confirm how many servings I had :)
After a few rounds of mud pie, we joined Owie (below) and Binky on the couch for episode 6 of The Bachelorette.
Going in to next week’s episode, we each have someone in the Top 5. Cindy is in a good spot, with 2 guys still in the running (Chris and Michael). I think Brooks has a shot, and Sarah’s kinda out of luck with #HashtagDrew. Oddly enough, we originally assigned the “extra” guy Zak to Mike and he’s still in it! It will be pretty funny if Zak wins, because then we’re treating Mike Jones to a pedicure.
I really think Chris and Brooks will be the final 2. Are you watching? What do you think?
Go make the mud pie.
Question: What kind of “birthday cake” do you make special requests for?
