      1/2   lb           Butter
    1 1/2   c            Confectioner’s sugar
      1/3   c            Unsweetened cocoa
    1       c            Coarsely chopped pecans
      1/2   c            Evaporated milk
 
   1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees 2. To prepare the cake
   batter, combine the butter and sugar in a
   mixing bowl.  Beat well until creamy.  Add the eggs, 1
   at a time, beating thoroughly after each addition. 3.
   Sift together the flour and cocoa.  Fold this into the
   creamed mixture.  Add the chopped nuts and the
   vanilla.  Beat well. 4. Butter the bottom and sides of
   a 9 X 13 inch baking pan.  Add a little flour and
   shake it around to coat the bottom and sides of the
   pan.  Shake out the excess. 5. Spoon the cake batter
   into the pan and bake 25 to 30 minutes.
   Remove from the oven and sprinkle the top with the
   marshmallows. Return to the oven and bake about 10
   minutes, until the marshmallows are melted and
   starting to brown.  Remove from the oven and let cool
   in the pan about 30 minutes. 6. Meanwhile, prepare the
   icing.  Melt the butter in a saucepan. 7. Sift
   together the confectioner’s sugar and cocoa.  Stir
   this into the butter along with the nuts and milk.
   Spread this over the cake and let stand until
   thoroughly cooled. 8. Cut into slices and serve. From:
