Chocolate Marshmallow Cake
Total TimePrep: 30 min. Bake: 20 min.
- 1/2 cup butter
- 2 ounces unsweetened chocolate
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 2 large eggs, room temperature
- 1 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 package (10-1/2 ounces) miniature marshmallows, divided
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 2 tablespoons 2% milk
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
- In a microwave, melt butter and chocolate; stir until smooth. Cool for 10 minutes. Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; set aside. In a large bowl, beat eggs, sugar, applesauce and vanilla. Stir in chocolate mixture. Gradually add dry ingredients; mix well.
- Pour into a greased 13x9-in. baking pan. Bake at 350° until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, 20-30 minutes.
- Set aside 1/2 cup marshmallows for glaze. Sprinkle remaining marshmallows over cake. Return to oven until marshmallows are softened, about 2 minutes.
- In a small saucepan, combine sugar, milk and butter. Bring to a boil; boil 1-1/2 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in chocolate chips and reserved marshmallows until melted. Quickly drizzle over cake (glaze will harden as it cools).

Insanely Good! I used a yellow Pillsbury cake mix and made into a 13 x 9 for pot luck. My goal was to use up sticky large marshmallows (left over from smores) that were taking up room in the cabinet. I cut them up into pieces and probably used more than the recipe called for. For the frosting, I increased the butter to 4T and used two handfuls of chocolate chips along with a large ball of marshmallows cut up. I dabbed it over the softened marshmallow topped cake and used edge of spatula to spread horizontal lines. I was concerned about cutting the cake after cooled so I cut it after cooling for 15 min. I tried placing on plate, but it didn't look appetizing so I returned it to the 13 x 9 pan. We delivered the cake warm to the pot luck with one row missing. What?? My daughter and I couldn't resist the hot mess of gooey goodness!
