Mississippi Mud

I think of my brother Alex every time I make of Mississippi Mud. Alex loved this when we were kids. When he was in the MTC he wrote me a letter and asked me to bring Mississippi Mud to the airport when we went to see him off. I did. He says he can still remember getting to Mexico with his treat and sharing it with the other missionaries.

2 sticks butter
1/2 c. cocoa
2 c. sugar
4 eggs
1 1/2 c. flour
Dash salt
1 1/2 cups nuts, chopped
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 large package mini-marshmallows

Icing:
1/2 stick melted mutter
1/2 c. evaporated milk
1/2 c. cocoa
1 (1 pound) box powdered sugar

Melt 2 sticks butter and 1/2 c. cocoa together. Blend in sugar, eggs, flour, salt, nuts and vanilla. Bake in 10”x14”x2” greased pan for 35 minutes to 350. Take out of oven; immediately spread marshmallows over cake. Spread icing over marshmallows to cover. Cut into squares when cool.
