Food Friday: Mississippi Mud

This was a classic dessert in our house growing up.  It was usually made for potlucks or when friends were coming over.  It is very rich but delicious and my mouth is watering just thinking about it.  Enjoy!

Mississippi Mud

4 eggs
2 cups sugar
1 1/2 cups flour
1 cup nuts
3 Tbsp cocoa
2 sticks oleo or butter
1 1/2 cups flaked coconut
1 Tbsp vanilla
Marshmallow creme
Chocolate Frosting

Cream together eggs, sugar, butter, and vanilla.  Add flour and cocoa, mix well, then add nuts and coconut.  Bake in greased and floured pan 30-40 minutes at 350 degrees.  As you take from the oven, spread a large jar of marshmallow creme over hot cake (miniature marshmallows can also be used and cake reheated until marshmallows melt). Frost when cool.
