CMP Dessert - Monday Munchies

I'm not exactly sure what CMP stands for. I think it usually stands for Chocolate, Marshmallow, and Peanut. However, there is no marshmallow in this recipe. I say it stands for Chocolate Mud Pie. My hubby says another name for it is Better Than S**. You call it want you want.

With Labor Day coming up, I wanted to post a recipe that we make for picnics/get-togethers quite often. It easily becomes a favorite among friends and family.
