Cream shortening and sugar; add eggs and beat well. Sift flour, cocoa and salt into shortening mixture. Add vanilla and nuts. Pour into a 9x13 inch baking dish (this will be the serving dish). Bake at 350 degrees F for 30 minutes or till cake tests done. When done, take cake immediately from the oven and cover with the mini marshmallows. When cake is cooled, add topping.
In a medium size pan on stove, melt margarine. In a separate bowl, sift cocoa and confectioners sugar. Add to melted margarine. Add milk and vanilla; boil till all sugar is dissolved. Then beat till thick enough to spread on cake. Sprinkle pecans and serve.
This is truly a chocolate lovers treat! Enjoy!
