Chocolate Peanut Butter Mud Pies

I grew up eating mud pies. Yes, actual mud pies, like these ones: here.

My Mom's original mud pie recipe calls for coconut but my husband, Mario, really hates coconut. I've been promising for years to try making him a more palatable version of my classic mud pie. As you can see I promised as much back in October 2007 when I posted the original recipe... better late than never, right?
