I made this beauty for Easter and it sure hit the spot! Like I’ve mentioned in the past, I used a box cake mix for this recipe. I just personally love how they taste but feel free to use your own cake recipe and then add the toppings!

If you let the cake sit too long after browning the marshmallows, you will get a big sticky layer of marshmallows. So, just a warning I would eat it while still warm and gooey!

    I have a feeling this would be a big hit…my boys love marshmallows. I have to hide them if I buy them for something or they disappear before I can use them!
