Mississippi Mud Cake

Homemade Chocolate Cake topped with melted marshmallows and warm chocolate frosting - YUM!

Hey readers, this is Lauren, visiting again from Tastes Better From Scratch. I’ve recently been on vacation, indulging in all sorts of sweet treats and fun. I’ve heard the more sugar you eat, the more your’re addicted to it. And I’m addicted. I have such a huge sweet tooth lately! And nothing cures it like chocolate, chocolate chocolate.

Homemade Chocolate Cake topped with melted marshmallows and warm chocolate frosting - YUM!

I’m so excited to share this amazing 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!

This Mississippi Mud Cake is chocolate bliss. A delicious homemade chocolate cake, with melted marshmallows and warm chocolate frosting.

Mississippi Mud Cake
  • One Chocolate Cake, baked in a 9x13'' pan
  • 1 (1o.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.
