Mississippi Mud Cake

Mississippi Mud Cake

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!


1 cup melted butter

2 cups sugar

1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

4 eggs, lightly beaten

1 teaspoon vanilla

1/8 teaspoon salt

1 1/2 cups flour

1 1/2 cups chopped pecans

10.5 oz bag mini  marshmallows


16 oz powdered sugar

1/2 cup milk

1/4 cup butter, softened

1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

1  In a large bowl, whisk together melted butter, sugar, cocoa, eggs, vanilla and salt.

2  Stir in flour and chopped pecans.

3  Pour into a foil lined and greased 15 x 10″ jelly roll pan.

4  Bake at 350 for 20 – 25 minute, until center is done.

5  Remove cake from oven and sprinkle marshmallows on top.  Return to oven for 4 – 5 more minutes.

6  Drizzle chocolate frosting over warm cake.  Allow to cool completely before cutting.
