Ingredients

THE RIVER

2 tsp
espresso powder or ground coffee
2
eggland's best large eggs
1/2 can(s)
hershey's syrup
1 box
brownie or chocolate cake mix
1/4 c
ice water
1/2 c
land o'lakes butter

THE MUD

2 pkg
jello refrigerated turtle pudding
1 box
oreos, finely crushed
1/2 can(s)
hershey's syrup

THE FROTH

1 can(s)
reddi whip (as much as desired)
1
1/2 gallon carton whitey's ice cream

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease 13x9 pan with Crisco shortening or baking spray.
2
Mix together espresso, eggs, 1/2 can Hershey's syrup, water, and brownie/cake mix (Tip: can substitute Gluten-Free brownie mix). Melt butter in microwavable bowl for 30 seconds, add to batter, and cream until there are no noticeable lumps (about 2 minutes).
3
Place batter in pan and cook for 25-30 minutes (check every 5 minutes starting at 20 minutes, test with fork or toothpick in middle to see if it comes up without any wet batter).
4
Cool on rack for 30 minutes.
5
Crush a box of Oreos in a ziploc bag till fine crumbs. Empty 2 packages of jello turtle pudding (but reserve topping that comes with pudding for later) into the ziploc and cut off a corner with a scissors. (can substitute jello chocolate refrigerated pudding or prepared instant jello chocolate pudding, 2 small or one large). Decorate brownies with the cake decorating (aka ziploc) tube.
6
Drizzle Hershey's syrup over the top (canned works best).
7
Make wave designs with Reddi Whip. Sprinkle the jello turtle topping on top.
8
Serve immediately or chill overnight. Can put an ice cap of vanilla ice cream over each dish (I would use Whitey's if available, a Midwest Mississippi region favorite). Enjoy!
