Mississippi Mud Cake!!!


This Mississippi Mud Cake includes a homemade chocolate cake with melted marshmallows and warm chocolate frosting poured on top. Trust me, it’s as delicious as it sounds!

Everyone loves a good chocolate cake (like this Flourless Chocolate Cake). Who doesn’t? But this popular potluck cake, Mississippi Mud Cake, just sets the bar up high….waaay up high!

We’re talking about moist, rich, and chocolatey cake, topped all over with a gooey melted marshmallow then finished off with a deliciously sweet chocolate frosting. Double YUM!

I don’t usually discriminate when it comes to baked goods (hey, I love them all), but DANG, this easy mud cake is simply drool-worthy. That soft melted marshmallow on top is what I think makes this cake far better than the rest. Hubby, who’s not even a big dessert fan, swears by this cake. Let’s get down to business and discover what makes this cake extra special!
