Mississippi Mud Cake

I have been craving this cake for a while.  I have never actually made it.  It is an easy cake to make but you need a little time to get all the parts done.

Make a basic chocolate cake.  You can use a brownie mix if you would like.
Melt 2 sticks of butter = 1 cup.
To the melted butter add 2 cups sugar
After you have whisk those together add 1/2 c unsweetened cocoa.
Mix that well and get all the lumps out.  Then add 4 eggs.
Add 1 teaspoon vanilla.
I got the mixer out to mix in 1 1/2 c all purpose flour.  I also added 1/8 t salt.
Then add 1 1/2 c rough chopped pecans to the chocolate batter.
Nice and mixed well.  Preheat the oven to 350.  The directions say to grease and flour a 15x10 jelly roll pan.  I don't have one so I sprayed a 13x9 baking dish.
All evenly spread in the pan.  The jelly roll pan was to cook for 20-25 minutes.  I checked it at 20 minutes and added about 10 more minutes.  I added them in 2 and 3 minute intervals.  You don't want to over cook it.
While the cake is baking I started on the icing.  Melt 1/4 c butter.
Add 1/2 c milk to the butter. I made a mistake.  DON'T MELT THE BUTTER.  It just needs to be softened.  It was not a complete disaster.  It's chocolate so you don't throw it out.
Add 1/3 c unsweetened cocoa.
Then add 1 16 oz pkg of powdered sugar.  16 oz is equal to 2 cups.  Mix well.
The icing all mixed up.  It is not a thick icing.
Take the cake out of the oven and spread one pkg of small marshmallows on the top of the hot cake.  Put back in the oven for about 5 minutes.
The melted marshmallows.
The chocolate icing poured over the marshmallows while still hot.  Let the cake cool before cutting.
