1 c. softened margarine
4 eggs
2 c. sugar
1 1/2 c. flour
1/4 c. cocoa
1 tsp. vanilla
1 c. coconut
1 c. nuts
1 jar marshmallow cream
1/2 c. margarine
1/2 c. cocoa
1/4 c. milk
4 c. powdered sugar
a tiny bit of hot water to make frosting smooth

Make brownie mixture and spread in brownie sheet. Mixture will be thick (like mud). Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes. While the cake is still hot, spread one jar of marshmallow cream on top. I usually drop it by spoonfuls and let it sit a bit. It gets warm and is easier to spread. Let cool completely. Make frosting and frost your Mississippi Mud.
