This rich, creamy recipe will satisfy any chocolate lover's cravings. Handed down through generations it has provided a delicious treat for the holidays or any day of the week.

What you will need:

1 1\2 cups sifted flour
2 cups sugar
4 eggs
1 cup butter or margarine (softened)
1\3 cup cocoa
1 cup coconut
1 cup pecans
1 large jar marshmallow creme
1 9X13 cake pan

Begin by preheating oven to 375 degrees. Cream flour, sugar and eggs until smooth. Mix butter and cocoa until completely blended. Add to flour mixture. Stir in coconut and nuts. If you are not a fan of pecans, walnuts may be substituted. Blend thoroughly. Mixture will be the consistency of brownie mix. Pour into greased pan and bake for 30 minutes. While this bakes mix ingredients together for icing.

What you will need for icing:
1 stick margarine
1\2 cup cocoa
1\2 cup evaporated milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 box powdered sugar
1 cup pecans

When cake is done, remove from the oven and immediately spread marshmallow cream on top using entire jar. Regular marshmallows may be used instead of the creme by placing them in a pan over boiling water for melting. Use a tablespoon of margarine in the marshmallows to thin the mixture and pour over cake while both are hot. Pour icing mixture over marshmellow cream and allow to cool. Cut into large brownie size pieces to serve.
