I'm looking for the mud pie recipe from Chart House. Thank you.

Many readers are familiar with this recipe. Cynthia Shea of Spring Hill, Karen Eckles of Tierra Verde, John Peters of St. Petersburg, Marsha Cochran of Seminole and Marie Bunting of Holiday share the recipe from cards that were handed out at the restaurant. Jennie Miller of Palm Harbor found her recipe in the Florida's Historic Restaurants cookbook. The most difficult part of the recipe is finding chocolate wafers. After being unable to find them in three stores, I bought a ready-made chocolate crust. If you happen to find the wafers, please let me know. Remember, ice cream containers have gotten smaller since those recipe cards were distributed. If you want a deeper pie, crack open another not-quite-a-half-gallon. I used one package of Publix coffee ice cream. Don't skip chilling the fudge sauce. If you use it at room temperature it will slide off the ice cream. Chilled, it spreads easily onto the pie. When cutting the pie, wipe the knife between cuts for a cleaner presentation.
Sylvia Gonzalez of Tampa would like Iavarone's Steak House and Italian Grill's creme brulee recipe. Trinity resident Catherine Turner would like a recipe for lobster pie. Mary Kirk of Clearwater would like a recipe for yeast rolls that can be made into a Christmas wreath or Christmas tree.
