Chocolate Mud Cake

Chocolate Mud Cake
From: Taters

You'll need one 9X13 cake pan.


1 cup of butter (or margarine). *I prefer and always use real butter
1/2 cup cocoa
2 cups of sugar
4 eggs
1 1/2 cups of flour
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp vanilla
1 cup chopped nuts (optional)
2 cups marshmallows (mini marshmallows)


1 cup butter
1/3 cup milk
1/4 cup cocoa
1 lb powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla
dash of salt

In a medium saucepan, melt butter. Add cocoa, sugar and eggs, beating well.

Add flour, salt, vanilla, and chopped nuts; making sure all is well beaten.

Pour into a 9X13 greased pan.

Bake at 350 degrees F for 25 to 30 minutes until cake no longer sticks to toothpick when tested.

Cover with marshmallows IMMEDIATELY after removing from oven.

Immediately begin frosting. In a medium saucepan, melt butter, milk and cocoa, mixing well, until mixture is smooth.

Beat in sugar, vanilla and salt until creamy.

Pour on cake while still warm. The frosting will soak into the cake and some marshmallows will be visible.

*I use unsweetened cocoa.

*This is perfect for taking to a potluck, BBQ or picnic.

I always get raves when I make this. The cake is very rich and sweet (which is why I use unsweetened cocoa).
