Everyone loves a sheet cake. Try classic Mississippi Mud Cake--a luscious combination of sweet chocolate, crunchy pecans, and gooey marshmallows.

How to Make It

Step 1

Whisk together melted butter and next 5 ingredients in a large bowl. Stir in flour and chopped pecans. Pour batter into a greased and floured 15- x 10-inch jellyroll pan.

Step 2

Bake at 350° for 20 to 25 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Remove from oven; top warm cake evenly with marshmallows. Return to oven, and bake 5 minutes. Drizzle Chocolate Frosting over warm cake. Cool completely.

Step 3

Note: 2 (5-ounce) packages brownie mix, prepared according to package directions, may be substituted for first 7 ingredients. Stir in chopped pecans. Bake at 350° for 30 minutes. Proceed with marshmallows and frosting as directed.

This is my all time favorite dessert. SOOOO rich. Here's the frosting recipe (promise it's the right one, I have it written down with the rest of the recipe): 1 16oz bag powdered sugar 1/2 cup milk 1/4 cup butter softened 1/3 cup cocoa just mix it all up, and you're good to go =)

This recipe was very good and was even better the second day after the frosting had sunk in. I will be making it again sometime. The frosting worked out alright for me. I melted the butter completely first before making the frosting,

Bring to boil, then remove from heat. Stir in confectioners sugar and slowly stir in vanilla. Pour over marshmallows.

The only recipe I see for the chocolate frosting is to buy a pre made can. I would like a real recipe. They look good, but what is the frosting recipe????
