Mounds Cake

I told Megan I would post this. It's truly evil.

It's a chocolate cake with coconut marshmallow frosting and chocolate sauce topping.

Make your favorite chocolate cake.
Top it with the coconut marshmallow frosting.
Smother it with the chocolate sauce.

Here is the recipe for the coconut marshmallow frosting:

1/2 c. sugar
2 Tbsp. water
2 large egg whites
1 jar (7 oz.) marshmallow creme
1 cup coconut
1tsp. coconut flavoring

Place the sugar, water, and egg whites in a medium-size heavy saucepan. Cook over low heat, beating continuously with an electric hand mixer on high speed until soft peaks form, 2-3 minutes. If your hand mixer has a cord, make sure to keep it away from the burner. Remove the pan from the heat. Add the marshmallow creme and beat the mixture with the mixer on high speed until stiff peaks form, 2 minutes more. Fold in the coconut and coconut flavoring. Frost your cake.

If you buy the Walmart brand marshmallow creme, there is another recipe for easy marshmallow creme frosting on the side.

Also, the chocolate topping makes the marshmallow frosting melt off the cake. It still tastes delicious, but it doesn't look fantastic. If anyone comes up with an idea for a better chocolate topping for the cake, let us all know. I know I will be making this again soon, Maggie requests it on a regular basis.

Thanks, Marrisse! I may have to use the Wal-mart recipe for the marshmallow creme as I somehow have a kitchen aid and have no idea where my hand mixer went to.
