Mississippi Mud Sheet Cake

A rich chocolate indulgence with a dreamy marshmallow-chocolate frosting.

Like me, you might be more familiar with Mississippi Mud Pie than you are Mississippi Mud Cake, but rest assured that our sheet cake version has a similar mash-up of chocolatey layers and textures that’s every bit as delicious. While there’s no crunchy cookie crust, there is plenty of fudgy, rich chocolate and also a dreamy marshmallow and chocolate swirled frosting to top it all off. It’s a rich indulgence, but it’s one that’s very easy to make.
