Heavenly Hash Cake

Today is Heavenly Hash Day. Of course, I'm not talking about the Hash in the Vintage Advertisement. Heavenly Hash can be lots of things: a fruit salad held together with sour cream or whipped cream, or it might be a chocolate candy or chocolate cake filled with marshmallows and nuts. Some ice cream makers have a variety of chocolate ice cream called Heavenly Hash (kind of like Rocky Road).

Since I'm into Chocolate, I'm posting a Heavenly Hash Cake recipe to celebrate the day. Warning: this is very sweet, but it's really good since it has three layers. It's also simple to make!

HEAVENLY HASH CAKE

Ingredients:
2 sticks butter
4 tbsp. cocoa
4 eggs
2 cups sugar
1 1/2 c. flour
1 1/2 cups nuts, chopped
1 tsp Madagascar Vanilla
1 bag mini marshmallows
Dash of salt.

Directions
Melt butter and cocoa together.
Beat eggs and sugar.
Add flour, salt and vanilla.
Fold in butter and cocoa mixture. Mix well.
Fold in nuts.
Pour into a 13 x 9 inch greased pan and bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes.
Remove from oven.
Distribute marshmallows evenly over warm cake top.
Return to oven for 5 minutes (just until marshmallows puff a bit)
Let cool.
Top with chocolate icing layer (this can be thick-take one pass over the cake and add rather than swirling)

ICING:

1/4 cup milk
3 Tbsp butter, melted
1 lb confectioners sugar
1/2 cup cocoa
1 tsp. vanilla

Heat milk and butter together. Beat in confectioners sugar, cocoa and vanilla.
