Can’t have a big family dinner without a big chocolate dessert! This one comes from a blog called “Joyful Momma’s Kitchen” and it was delicious! In fact, there is a little left over and I am just dying for another piece but I’m trying to hold off as long as possible so that I don’t eat two pieces today!

2 cups sugar
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
4 eggs, lightly beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/8 teaspoon salt

10.5 oz bag mini marshmallows
