This is a fun recipe you can make with kids. They will love sprinkling the pecans, chocolate chips and marshmallows over the batter, and they'll be so proud of the final result. Plus, the cake comes together in minutes and feeds a crowd. -Janet Keppinger, Salem, Oregon

"I love this recipe, have made it several times. It tastes like a chocolate chip cookie, can't eat pecans so I omit them, but still so delicious. Getting ready to make it again right now."
