How to Make The Big Muddy Mississippi Brownies


  • 1Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease 13x9 pan with Crisco shortening or baking spray.
  • 2Mix 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).
  • 3Place 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).
  • 4Cool on rack for 30 minutes.
  • 5Crush 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.
  • 6Drizzle Hershey's syrup over the top (canned works best).
  • 7Make wave designs with Reddi Whip. Sprinkle the jello turtle topping on top.
  • 8Serve 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!
