This Mississippi Mud Cake recipe is sure to cure that sweet tooth.

Homemade Mississippi Mud Cake

I’m so excited to share this amazing recipe for Mississippi Mud Cake with you guys–I’m drooling just thinking about it. I have many favorite chocolate recipes, like these Caramel Filled Chocolate Cupcakes and these Triple Chocolate Brownie Bites, but nothing beats a delicious chocolate cake! What I love about this cake is, it’s chocolate bliss!! What’s better than a delicious homemade chocolate cake, with melted marshmallows and warm chocolate frosting on top? Um, nothing, in my opinion!! Serve it with a bowl of ice cream and you’re sure to have a lot new friends. 😉

How to make Mississippi Mud Cake:

Mississippi Mud Cake
This Mississippi Mud Cake is a delicious homemade chocolate cake, with melted marshmallows and warm chocolate frosting.
  • Any Chocolate Cake (baked in a 9x13'' pan)
  • 1 (10.5 oz) bag of miniature marshmallows
For the frosting:
  • ⅓ cup butter
  • ⅓ cup milk
  • ⅓ cup cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  1. Bake Chocolate Cake according to instructions. Remove cake from oven and sprinkle marshmallows all over the cake, completely covering it. Return to oven (at 350 degrees F) for 2-3 minutes or until the marshmallows are just slightly puffed and melted. Allow cake to cool completely before drizzling frosting on top.
  2. For the frosting: Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Add milk and cocoa powder and whisk well. Cook for about 2-3 more minutes, stirring constantly, until mixture has thickened slightly. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla and powdered sugar. Use an electric mixer to make the frosting smooth. Drizzle warm frosting immediately over cake. Refrigerate cake for for about 30 minutes or until frosting has set. Store at room temperature.
