Toasted-Coconut Marshmallow Cake

Another want to try recipe

TOASTED-COCONUT MARSHMALLOW CAKE

1 box Jet-Puff toasted-coconut marshmallows cut in half. 1 box of your favorite chocolate cake mix prepared per package directions. Spread marshmallows, cut side down, on the bottom of a non-stick-sprayed (9x13 inch) glass baking dish. Pour batter over the marshmallows and bake per the package directions. The marshmallows will come to the top forming a glaze or frosting!

Note: try any other flavor cake mix that sounds good to you. One neighbor used yellow cake mix and another pineapple. The toasted-coconut marshmallows can be tricky to find. Many stores only carry them during the holidays. Try a Big K-mart or Super Wal-Mart. The big warning however, is to buy an extra bag of the marshmallows. They are like candy and once you start eating one you can't stop. But you need a whole bag to make the recipe.

Just saw the toasted marshmallows again at Wal*Mart yesterday.
Hurry up and grab a dozen bags while they're there!

For the last two days I've been combing my area looking for these marshmallows and finally found them at a CVS Pharmacy today.

The cake just came out of the oven awhile ago and I'm enjoying a slice (OK, OK a big slab!) of the cake while I type. All I can say is OMG!!!!! Actually that's about the sound you make because it's awfully gooey from the marshmallows. It's so yummy! Especially with a big glass of milk. Only change I'd make next time is to add a little coconut extract to the cake batter to give it a bit more coconutty taste. But overall, it's a keeper!

Hey, marm, if you can find these marshmallows, this would be a good one for your baking job (or else use regular marshmallow and mix some toasted coconut into the batter)!

OK, icy--you deserve one! But I was actually just thinking where I could hide the cake so I don't have to share with DH!

LOL your poor DH. Better be careful, most men can smell coconut on your breath.
