Mississippi Mud Cake

Here's the recipe...from Southern Living.. it's
the one I've used for years... I can't improve
on this...

1 cup butter
1/2 cup cocoa
2 cups sugar
4 large eggs lightly beaten
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
dash salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups chopped pecans
4 cups miniature marshmallows
chocolate frosting

Combine butter and cocoa in a medium
saucepan. Cook over medium heat until
butter is melts. Remove from heat;
transfer to a large mixing bowl. Add
sugar and eggs beat at medium speed
with electric mixer until blended. Add
flour, salt and vanilla beat until blended.
Stir in pecans. Spoon batter into a
lightly greased 13 x 9 inch pan.

Bake in preheated 350 degrees for 35
minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle
with marshmallows over hot cake.
Immediately spread frosting over
marshmallows on cake. Cool in pan on
wire rack. Cut into squares to serve.
Chill before slicing for neater squares.
Yields 15 servings.

Chocolate Frosting
1 (16 ounce) package powdered sugar sifted
1/2 cup milk
1/3 cup cocoa
1/4 cup butter softened

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl
beat at medium speed until smooth
adding 1 more tablespoon of milk if
frosting is too stiff. Yields 2 cups.

You can make half the recipe in an 8 x 8 pan
