1 cup DOMINO Granulated Sugar
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup shortening, melted
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa
1/4 cup water
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 large eggs
1 cup NESTLE TOLL HOUSE Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels
1 cup miniature marshmallows
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1/2 cup NESTLE TOLL HOUSE Semi-Sweet Chocolate Mini Morsels
2 cups whipping cream
2 (8-ounce) packages NESTLE TOLL HOUSE Semi-Sweet Chocolate Baking Bars, broken into pieces


Preheat oven to 350°. Line the bottom of a 10-inch springform pan with parchment paper. Lightly grease and flour paper and sides of pan.

Stir together first 9 ingredients until well blended; fold in 1 cup chocolate morsels. Pour batter into prepared pan, and spread evenly over bottom.

Bake on middle rack at 350° for 20 to 25 minutes. Remove from oven, and sprinkle top evenly with marshmallows, pecans, and 1/2 cup chocolate mini morsels. Place on a wire rack, and let cool. Pour hot Chocolate Pudding over marshmallow mixture; cover and chill 8 hours or overnight.

Heat cream in a saucepan; bring to a simmer. Remove pan from heat, and add chocolate pieces, stirring until chocolate melts. Let ganache stand 1 hour, stirring occasionally, until spreading consistency. Remove sides from springform pan; pour and spread chocolate mixture evenly on top and sides of cake.

TIP: When putting the chocolate ganache on this dessert, you may need to pour on a layer, let it set; then pour on an additional layer, and chill. Don't worry if you have ganache left over--simply freeze it for another use.
