Sweet Summer Treat: Memphis Mud Pie

Two desserts in one week! I may fail the 30 for 30 challenge because I can't fit into my clothes.  Luckily I took this one over to a friend's for dinner so it wasn't in the house for me to just eat. Which I would have. Essentially, it's like a giant brownie with an Oreo cookie crust.  Oh yeah, and topped with vanilla whipped cream. I was watching "Down Home with the Neelys" (on the Food Network) a while ago and saw Gina make it (recipe here).  I didn't even take time to think about it, I just printed that one off to make ASAP.  It tastes great chilled with the whipped cream on top, but you could even forgo the cream and serve it warm, with ice cream.  Or, if you wanted to be healthy about it (or really just give the illusion of healthiness) you could cut up some strawberries to put on top.  Either way, yum! 

Let me just leave you with this, my favorite Jack Handy quote: "When you die, if you get a choice between regular heaven and pie heaven, choose pie heaven. It may be a trick, but if it's not, mmmmmm boy!"
