Mississipi Mud Cake

My mom saw Mississippi mud cake on TV and asked me to make it, since I had all the ingredients I figured why not.

2 cups sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 stick unsalted butter
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup cocoa
1/4 cup water
2 eggs
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup buttermilk
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Miniature marshmallows

1/2 stick butter
1/2 cup milk
3 tablespoons powdered sugar
1/2 cup cocoa
3/4 cup chocolate almond bark
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Preheat the oven to 350° and grease or line a 9x13 inch pan.

1. Combine the sugar, salt, and flour in a large mixing bowl.
2. Bring the butter, oil, cocoa, and 1/4 cup water to a boil in a saucepan. Add to the flour mixture. 
3. Beat together the eggs, baking soda, buttermilk, and vanilla. Add to the chocolate mixture, mix well.
4. Pour into the prepared pan and bake for 25 minutes.

Combine all ingredients in a saucepan and melt together, whisking until smooth. Set aside.

1. Put the cake on a cooling rack and allow to cool slightly before covering in mini marshmallows.
2. Pour warm icing over and let sit before serving. Enjoy.
