Bar #75: Mississippi Mud Bars

So, I am really proud of this little bar right here…not only is it pretty but it is delicious too!  I don’t know why but when these bars came out, I was just so pleased with myself!  They are everything I wanted them to be…chocolate base, nice marshmallow center and yummy chocolate frosting on top…the perfect trifecta.
Shopping List
1 box chocolate cake mix
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 eggs
1 cup pecan pieces
1 (10 oz) bag of mini marshmallows
1/2 cup of butter, softened
3 cups powdered sugar
1 tablespoon or so of milk
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Grease (I use Pam) a 9×13 baking dish.  Set aside.
In a large mixing bowl combine cake mix, vegetable oil and eggs with an electric mixer.  Pour batter into prepared baking dish and bake 15 minutes.  Remove from oven and quickly sprinkle pecans down over the top followed by the entire bag of marshmallows.  Return to oven and bake another 3 minutes.
Remove from oven and allow to cool completely on the counter before frosting.
To make the frosting, beat the butter, powdered sugar, milk and cocoa powder with an electric mixer.  Add more powdered sugar if the frosting is too thin and more milk if it’s too thick.  Once it reaches the desired consistency, frost the cooled bars.  Store in the fridge when not enjoying.
So good.  Just so good.

    Oh my word this looks good! I once bought instant nonfat dry milk for a recipe of yours but I can't remember which one it was! Any ideas? 🙂
