Mississippi Mud Cake

My Dad and brother made this cake once, with the addition of canned cherry pie filling. It sold for $40 (like 20 years ago) at a scout auction. It is easy because it uses a boxed brownie mix and most of the other things you would have already in your pantry. Another one of my Mom's great recipes.

Misssissippi Mud Cake

4 eggs
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 tsp. vanilla
1 pkg. brownie mix *I like Betty Crocker or Duncan Hines)
2 cups chopped nuts *I use pecans)
1 c. flaked coconut
1 jar marshmallow creme

In a large bowl, beat eggs until foamy. Add melted butter and mix well. Add brownie mix and blend well. Stir in vanilla, nuts and coconut. Pour into prepared 9x 13 pan. Bake in 350 degree oven for 25-30 minutes or until edges separate from pan. Don't overcook. While hot, carefully spread marshmallow creme on top. Cool one hour and frost with chocolate icing

Chocolate icing

1 lb. powdered sugar, sifted
1/2 c butter
6 tbsp evaporated milk
4 tbsp cocoa

Sift powdered sugar into medium bowl. In small saucepan, combine butter, evaporated milk and cocoa. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Immeadiately add to powdered sugar. Beat until smooth.

*If you wanted to add the canned cherries, add them after cooling before the chocolate frosting.*
