My aunt who recently died used to make an amazing Mississippi Mud and brought it to every family function. I'm looking for a recipe very similar to how hers would turn out. She never wrote hers down and eyeballed the whole thing but it always turned out exactly the same and it was brilliant! And Mississippi Muds vary greatly, so I'll do a little explainin' here now. LOL
It was always in a sheet pan and the cake was almost like a fudge. The icing was SUPER gooey and thick, but not solid like a frosting. More like a really really really heavy glaze. And of course it had the nuts and marshmallows in it. I HAVE to have this soon because it's my NUMBER ONE pregnancy craving and it will not go away!!! I HAVE to have some! PLEASE HELP!!!!
Ok, I just asked my sister if she had it by chance and she DID!!!! AMAZING!!!
So, here it is in all it's glory. I BEG you to make this!!!
2 cups sugar
2 sticks butter
1 1/2 cup flour
1/3 cup cocoa
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup coconut
1 cup pecans
Beat eggs and sugar until thick. Mix flour, cocoa, butter, and vanilla. Add to egg mixture and mix well. Add nuts and coconut. Bake at 350 degrees til cracked done. As soon as cake is done, spread jar of marshmellow cream on top.
1 stick butter (melted)
1/2 cup cocoa
1 lb. box powdered sugar
6 tbsp. milk
1 tsp. vanilla
Mix together. Spread on top of marshmellows.
