Heavenly Hash

If your extended family is anything like mine, when you have a family reunion there are always certain dishes you look forward to. In my husband's family, his mom's Sweet Potato Souffle is highly anticipated at every gathering. My mom's side of the family has several good cooks, with delicious "signature dishes". This dessert is one of those recipes. We traditionally refer to it as "Aunt Cindy's" but she is quick to point out that the recipe came from her mother-in-law, my Granny.

Heavenly Hash

1 cup butter, melted
2 cups sugar
4 eggs
1-1/2 cups self-rising flour
2 cups chopped pecans
1 tablespoon vanilla
1-1/2 cups mini marshmallows

In a mixing bowl, combine butter, sugar and eggs. Beat slightly. Add flour and pecans; mix well. Stir in vanilla. Spread mixture into a greased 9x13 pan. Bake at 350° for 30 minutes. Sprinkle marshmallows over the hot cake. Melt slightly in oven. Pour chocolate topping over cake. Let cool.

Chocolate Topping
1 box powdered sugar
4 tablespoons cocoa
1/2 cup evaporated milk
2 tablespoons butter, melted

In a medium saucepan, combine butter and milk. Mix well and bring to a boil. Sift together cocoa and sugar. Stir into milk mixture. Remove from heat and stir until smooth.
