Mississippi Mud Cake

Looking for a fun dessert?   Here is a perfect dessert for us living close to the mighty Mississippi.  It is even good for those who don’t live near it but want something sweet and delicious.  You can name it after any muddy river you like.  It is a great dessert for a Sunday dinner, pot luck or a family function.  It's sort of a gooey brownie like cake made from scratch with lots of marshmallows and a chocolate nut frosting on top. 

2 sticks butter
2 cups sugar
½ cup cocoa
4 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1 ½ cups flour
1 tsp. baking powder
¼ tsp. Kosheer salt
1 cup coconut
1 bag miniature marshmallows

1 stick butter
4 tbs. cocoa
6 tbs. milk
1 lb. box powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup chopped walnuts or pecans

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Whisk together melted butter, sugar, cocoa, eggs, and vanilla.  Mix in flour, baking powder, salt and coconut.  Pour into a greased 9 x 13 inch pan.  Bake for 20 to 25 minutes.

Sprinkle the top with the marshmallows and place back in oven for just about 5 minutes.

To make the frosting, place the butter, cocoa, and milk in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Stir constantly to prevent scorching.  Remove from heat and add sugar, vanilla, and nuts.

Drizzle evenly over the marshmallow layer.

It has everything wonderful in it you can think of, but you can serve it warm with a scoop of ice cream to really take it over the top.  

Hope your Sunday is over the top.  Be happy and may God bless you and yours.
