Mocha Mud Pie Recipe

Christmas Recipes Coffee Recipes

The classic pairing of chocolate and coffee, we know this indulgent dessert will be a hit in your home

If you’ve been following our social media feed, you will have seen that it was National Chocolate Cake Day last week. We obligingly enjoyed a rather large slice of chocolate cake, washed down with Miles Bright & Breezy coffee – which got us thinking about the delicious combination of chocolate and coffee and inspired us to make this scrumptious mocha mud pie…

Prep Time: 45 minutes (including chilling and cooling time)

Making Time: 35 minutes

Serves: 10

Rich and indulgent mocha mud pie made using Miles Ground Italian Espresso


For the base:
  • 300g finely crushed Oreos
  • 85g unsalted butter
For the filling:
  • 175g finely chopped dark chocolate
  • 60g unsalted butter
  • 1 tbsp Miles Ground Italian Espresso
  • 3 tbsp water
  • 240ml whipping cream
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt
  • 3 large egg yolks
  • 4 tbsp caster sugar
For the topping:
  • 230ml double cream
  • 1 tbsp caster sugar
  • Grated chocolate



  • Grease a 9-inch pie dish, the dish will need to be around 2 inches deep.
  • Melt the 85g unsalted butter and combine with the finely crushed Oreos in a large bowl.
  • Spread the mixture evenly into the pie dish, smoothing out and pressing into the bottom and sides to form an even base.
  • Chill for 45 minutes, until the base is firm.
  • While the base is chilling, add Miles Ground Italian Espresso and boiling water to a cafetiere. Leave to stand for 5 minutes before pushing the plunger down.
  • Melt the finely chopped dark chocolate and 60g unsalted butter in a heatproof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water (making sure it does not touch the water). Pour in the coffee and, once combined, leave too cool.
  • Beat the whipping cream, 2 tbsp caster sugar, vanilla extract and pinch of salt in a bowl until the mixture forms stiff peaks. Leave to chill.
  • Whisk the egg yolks and 2 tbsp caster sugar in a separate heatproof bowl.
  • Place the bowl of whisked eggs over a pan of simmering water (making sure it does not touch the water). Whisk the mixture vigorously for 3 minutes, until it turns pale and almost triples in volume. Remove from the heat and leave to cool for 1-2 minutes, then add it to the melted, cooled, chocolate mixture and combine well.
  • Gradually fold the chilled cream mixture into the chocolate, egg mixture, until it is evenly incorporated and no streaks remain.
  • Pour the filling over the biscuit base and cover with cling film. Chill for 2-3 hours, until set.
  • For the topping beat the double cream with 1 tbsp caster sugar in a large bowl to form stiff peaks.
  • Spread the cream over the pie and sprinkle with grated chocolate to serve.
  • Store the pie covered in the fridge for up to two days – if it lasts that long!
