A purely homemade mud pie.
I was looking for an ice cream mud pie and I came across a recipe on AllRecipes.com
I decided to make this recipe for a couple of reasons. First, I was actually looking for something very homemade and labor intensive. Second, the recipe has no photo of it posted yet and the last review was left in 2008. I decided to make homemade vanilla ice cream and homemade whipped cream to go along with this as well.
I took the sides off of the springform pan and some of the espresso fudge came out. No worries, I just scraped it and placed the extra fudge on the plate next to the slice and put some homemade whipped cream on top.
For the topping as you see, I put some of the espresso fudge on top as the recipe indicates. I wanted this to look nice so I piped homemade whipped cream around the side, added some Godiva 85% chocolate shavings on top of the fudge and placed some pitted cherries on for some color.
