The Texas Flood Pie is so named because of the great amounts of rain the state can sometimes be accustomed to, not to mention the standard practice of that rain tending to back up every so often. In honor of the Mississippi Mud Pie, the creator of this recipe, Marye of Restless Chipotle, found it a dubious honor, but a tasty one, to name her recipe the Texas Flood Pie! The only baked component of the entire recipe is the crust, which takes a maximum of fifteen minutes. Add to that, four kinds of chocolate (oh my) and you’ve got what she calls “a flood of chocolatey goodness.” And the bonus is that it can be made ahead and kept in the freezer, needing only twenty minutes to thaw on the counter before serving. So, despite its namesake incidents, the maker of this chocolatey miracle sure has her heart in the right place!
