Momma has quite a sweet tooth, and we love that about her because we do, too! She makes so many delicious desserts, but her go-to is what she calls Momma’s Favorite Mississippi Mud Pie. She loves it so much because it’s not too complicated to make and it has a perfectly fluffy, creamy, and chocolatey inside that just pairs so well with the homemade, crunchy pecan crust. We love that she loves it, because that means we get to taste it rather frequently! There’s a lot of love surrounding this sweet treat, so we hope you’re just as delighted by Momma’s Favorite Mississippi Mud Pie as we are!
