Mississippi Mud Cakes from the Cookie Post

mumblycj Apr 23, 2007 11:46 AM

As teenagers in Manhattan Beach in the late 70s, my sisters and I spent many summers at the beach, and not a day went by that we didn't visit the Cookie Post, a small bakery right on the strand. We always ordered their Mississippi Mud Cake - brownies with a layer of marshmallow cream, chocolate frosting, walnuts. The Cookie Post has been out of business for years, and we've been trying to recreate the mud cake for about as long without any luck. Can anyone recommend a local restaurant or bakery that may have something similar on their menu? Or a recipe? Thanks.

    If you google Mississippi Mud Cake you get ton of replies.

    I clicked on the top one and then clicked on the top restaurant inside and it sounded pretty much like what you described.
