Directions:
Stir together first 4 ingredients in a large bowl. Add melted butter, eggs, and vanilla, stirring until smooth. Spread batter into a greased 13"x9" pan. Bake at 325 for 30 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Sprinkle hot cake with mini marshmallows.

Combine margarine, cocoa & milk in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly with a wire whisk, and boil one minute. Remove from heat and stir in powdered sugar. Immediately pour chocolate mixture over marshmallows. Let cake cool completely on wire rack. Cut into squares. To get picture-perfect slices from this rich cake, cover & chill it overnight before slicing it.

Take A Shortcut!!! If your time is too short and cravings abound, substitute a 19.8 oz package of brownie mix for the cake batter. Prepare mix according to package directions and spoon into a prepared 13"x9" pan. Bake at 350 for 25 minutes and proceed as directed in above recipe.

This recipe is one that I had gotten from my sis-in-law, May Dell Daughrity. Mom Walker and my sis-in-laws often passed recipes back and forth through me. They were certainly happy I married into the Walker Family!!!
