3 T. cocoa
1 lb powdered sugar
6 tsp. heavy cream
1 tsp. vanilla

In a saucepan combine butter, coke, semi-sweet baking square. Bring to a boil- remove from heat and add marshmallows and stir until blended and the marshmallows disappear. Set aside and cool to room temperature.
In mixing bowl blend the shortening, oil, vanilla, and sugar until fluffy. Add eggs and buttermilk and beat until smooth.
In another bowl mix flour with baking soda, cocoa, baking powder and salt. Add half of the flour mixture to shortening, egg mixture, and beat. Scrape bowl time to time to clean the sides off so ingredients are blended in the batter.
