Gluten Free Mississippi Mud Pie

My daughter’s graduation party was on Sunday and there were only two food dishes that the platters were licked clean. (Click HERE to find out what the other dish was!) Yes, not even a crumb was left!   We went with a “Southern Food Theme” since Carrie will be attending Belhaven University in Jackson Mississippi this Fall.   I asked my dear friend Kim if she would make this recipe for Gluten Free Mississippi Mud Pie.  She adapted the recipe to make it gluten-free and boy, oh boy, was it good!  Thanks, Kim!

I was asked many times for the recipe.  I am thrilled to share with you this recipe for delectable, creamy, chocolate, one piece isn’t enough, gluten-free pie!
