Mud Pies

Posted on April 13, 2012


Don’t know about you, but my boys get far to much chocolate at Easter. So im always looking for new fun ideas to make something yummy out of them.

I found this recipe for Mud Pies, that were so easy to make and utterly yummy I had to share it with you all.


200g chocolate (broken into pieces)
200g butter
3 Eggs
75g Caster Sugar
100g self raising flour (sifted)
2 tablespoon of icing sugar or cocoa powder to decorate after


1. Stand 12 silicone cases on a baking tray or line a 12 section cupcake tin with paper/foil cases.

2. Put the chocolate and butter in a heatproof bowl and set over a pan of simmering water. Leave until melted then stir together.

3. Put the eggs and sugar in a bowl and beat together with a hand whisk for 5 mins, until light and foamy. Add the flour and the melted chocolate mixture and fold in gently with a large metal spoon. Divide the mix equally between cases.

4. Bake in a pre-heated oven, 160’C, Gas mark3, for 15 minutes or until risen and just firm to touch. Leave to cool for 5-10 mins. Sift the cocoa powder or icing sugar over the top to decorate.

Kyle loved making these and got himself all prepared in his Chef outfit :)
