North Carolina Mud Pie

cathy tate


I could never find a recipe for Mississippi Mud Pie/Cake that I liked, so I created my own version! I served this at Christmas Eve dinner and it was a hit with my entire family. My daughter liked it so much that she requested it for her next birthday instead of her usual carrot cake! I can say that this is family tested and approved!

How to Make North Carolina Mud Pie


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Blend sugar and melted butter in an electric mixer; add eggs one at a time, just until blended. Combine flour, cocoa and salt. Add to the butter mixture. Stir in vanilla.
  2. Spray an 8-inch pie plate with cooking spray. Pour fudge mixture into pie plate. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes or until almost set. Remove from oven; turn the oven to broil.
  3. Layer marshmellos on top of the pie, starting with the center, making a circle and working your way out around to the outer edges. Start with the largest marshmellos in the center outward and the smaller marshmellos on the outmost circles and filling in between the larger marshmellos. Stack them up until you have a mound, looking like a little mountain. Put pie back into the oven (now on broil) watching constantly until the marshmellos are browned on top and melted. Remove from oven. Top with fudge sauce.

    While pie is baking, combine sugar and cocoa in small saucepan; blend in evaporated milk and corn syrup. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture boils. Boil and stir approximately 1 minute. Remove from heat and stir in butter and vanilla. Drizzle over pie.
