Yes this dessert is made in layers. Do you need a recipe? I have a very good one.
Paula Deen's Mississippi Mud Cake
From chef and author Paula Dean
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 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup buttermilk
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 bag miniature marshmallows
1 stick unsalted butter, softened
3 tablespoons cocoa
6 tablespoons milk
1 one-pound box confectioner's sugar
1 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Preheat the oven to 350° F. Grease and flour a 13" x 9" baking pan.
Combine the sugar, salt, and flour in a large mixing bowl. Bring butter, oil, cocoa, and 1/4 cup water to a boil in a saucepan. Add to the flour mixture.
Beat together the eggs, baking soda, buttermilk, and vanilla. Add to the chocolate mixture, mix well, and pour into the prepared pan. Bake for 25 minutes.
While the cake is baking, make the icing by melting the butter in the cocoa and milk over low heat. Bring the mixture to a boil, then remove from the heat. Stir in the confectioner's sugar. Slowly mix in the nuts and the vanilla.
Take the cake from the oven, and when it cools a bit, cover it with miniature marshmallows. Pour the warm icing over the cake and the marshmallows. Cool the cake before serving.

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!
