Mississippi Mud Cake

This recipe comes from my grandma’s cook book and I LOVE IT!The recipe claims to be cake, but I think it taste more like these brownies, with a couple minor differences and just with something a little extra on top :) Some think its pretty rich, but I am a die hard chocolate lover and this is just perfect for me!It combines marshmallow and chocolate to create a little piece of divine heaven.here is the recipe:MISSISSIPPI MUD CAKE4 eggs2 cups sugar1 cup butter, melted1 1/2 cups flour1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa1 tsp. vanilla1/2 cup chopped pecans (**optional.  I never add them because I am not a nut person, but if you like them, go for it!) 7 oz. jar marshmallow cremeLEVEE FROSTING1/2 cup butter, melted1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa1 tsp. vanilla6 Tbsp. milk1 (1 pound) box powdered sugarGrease and flour a 9″ x 13 ” pan.  Preheat oven to 350 F.In a large bowl beat eggs until thick.  Gradually beat in sugar.  Add melted butter and beat.  Add flour, cocoa, vanilla, and pecans (if desired).  Stir well with a spoon and pour into prepared pan.Bake 30 minutes at 350 F or until done.  Remove from oven and let cool for a few minutes.  While brownies are still warm, spread marshmallow creme gently on surface of cake.  Prepare Levee Frosting.  Spread frosting gently over warm marshmallow creme, swirling to give a marbled effect  Sprinkle nuts over top if desired.Enjoy!Linking up to these parties and here
