This is the original STSC I had years ago and it was soooo delicious. Looking for a different dessert for Labor Day, and this will surely set well with my family!!

Add crushed skor bars or heath bars between the layers and on top. It's WAYYY better than just hershey bars

I've made this countless times. When I first got the recipe, it was given to me as "Mississippi Mud Pie". Whatever you call it, it's never failed to elicit raves. It's really delicious, but watch the amount of sugar called for in the Cool Whip: I'd decrease it a bit because there's sugar in everything else. Use shaved semi-sweet chocolate (or make chocolate curls) for topping. Enjoy!

Question... The layer with the pudding as filling... do you mix the vanilla and chocolate together??? Thanks!
