Chocolate Marshmallow Cake

August 01, 2016

Amazing chocolate cake topped with marshmallows and super fudgy frosting..
Is it really August? 

Summer sure has flown by! My husband will be back to work in just about 2 weeks already. Crazy.  It seems like it was just Memorial Day. I guess it shouldn't be too much of a surprise.We have been super crazy busy this summer.  It's been going-going-going.  Lots of  camps, library activities and pool days. So much fun stuff! Mmph..now, I'm bummed. :(

Let's talk about something else. How about chocolate cake?! That will help us forget about summer ending too quickly.

We start with your basic chocolate cake. Then, you sprinkle the top of your warm cake with mini marshmallows.  Annndd..we top it off with some to-die-for chocolate fudgy frosting.This frosting, my friends, so good.  You are going to love it. It goes perfect with the chocolate cake and the nice, melted marshmallows. 

Serve this one up with a cold glass of milk..it's a fudgy, chocolate- lover's dream!
