A friend was looking for this recipe, and I couldn't find it at the time, but I found it yesterday while cleaning up my recipe box so I thought I'd post it here so she could have it. This is kind of a cake, kind of brownies. Very gooey and messy and delicious.
Mississippi Mud Cake
1 cups sugar
1 cup margarine
2 Tbsp. cocoa
1 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 cups nuts (optional)
1 1/2 cups coconut (optional)
(I've never used either nuts or coconut when I've made this)
Mix together all ingredients. Spread into greased 9x13 pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
1 pkg. small marshmallows or 1 jar marshmallow creme
While cake is hot, spread marshmallows or creme on top. If using marshmallows, return cake to oven until marshmallows are melted and lightly browned.
1 lb. (4 cups) powdered sugar
1/2 cup cocoa
1/2 cup margarine
1/2 cup evaporated milk
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
Mix together until well blended. Spread over cooled cake.
