excellent recipe. Co-workers loved it. However to make things easier, I used a chocolate cake mix and added the topping in recipe

Heres the scoop on this recipe. If you just want chocolate and sugar, this is the recipe for you. Your teeth will hurt and you will be dying for milk after one piece. Also make some changes to the recipe, the topping is to runny as one reviewer also said. I added some flour to the topping to make it a little thicker. There also is no need for 16oz of marshmallows on top, it's ridiculous. I put just one layer on top. All in all its an ok recipe just a bit to sweet for my tastes.

I took this to a friend's open house and everyone asked for the recipe! It is delicious! I put the cake back in the oven for a few minutes after I put the marshmallows on top to melt them a little better. This recipe was amazing!!

This recipe was rich, but it seemed more sugary than chocolaty. The marshmallows didn't melt and the topping was runny. I was looking for an indulgent dessert but all I got were empty calories.

This is definitely a keeper. Rich, rich taste. You'll want to cut it into small pieces because of the richness. For chocolaqte lovers
