Se7en’s Edible Mud Pie…

We used to eat this all the time when we were kids. The dessert we could all make ourselves and then invite a bunch of friends over for. Hold onto your health check and consider this to be a rare treat. My kids have been dying to make mud-pie for a while so here we are…


Let’s Meet The Players:

For the base you will need:

  • A packet of tennis biscuits.
  • 3 tablespoons of melted butter.

And for the filling:

  • A cup of cream.
  • A can of caramel.
  • Some mint chocolate for the topping.

And Let’s Play the Game:

  1. You can smash your tennis biscuits with a rolling pin or you can pop them into the blender… to make biscuit crumbs.

  7. Combine your caramel and cream together and beat away. If you can’t buy a can of caramel then you can make it by covering a can of condensed milk with water and boiling it in a pot for about 2.5 hours. You can find instructions over here.

    Leave your mud-pie resting in the fridge until you are ready to serve it!!! My only advice is… make sure you have someone, or quite a few someone’s to share this with because once you start… there will be no leftovers!!!

  1. Hay Phyllis, How are you!!! How funny that we both had mud on the brain!!! The mint is essential… in fact many people just crumble a peppermint crisp which is a yummy minty candy covered in chocolate… my kids can’t have it because of allergies… but they have no problem with the Lindt chocolate!!! I hope you guys have a fun weekend and are enjoying some summer!!!

  2. Hi Karen M, Yummy indeed…. cream and chocolate in the same dish – I’ll take it whatever it is, especially if you toss in some caramel to go!!!! Have a great weekend!!!

  3. Um Stephanie… Tennis biscuits are a bit thinner and crisper than shortbread… when my mum was a child they had the shape of a tennis racket on them, hence the name. Think of a really plane slightly sweet biscuit to have with your tea and you are on the way to a tennis biscuit. Hope you guys are having a fun weekend!!!
