Ingredients

2-1/2 cups flour
2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon soda
1 cup cola
2/3 cup butter
2 tablespoons cocoa
2 eggs
1/2 cup buttermilk
2 teaspoons vanilla
1-1/2 cups tiny marshmallows

Topping:
1/2 cup butter
1/4 cup cocoa

2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla

Instructions

Stir together flour, sugar and soda, set aside. In a saucepan bring cola, butter and cocoa to boiling. Add the hot mixture to the flour mixture and mix. Add eggs, buttermilk and vanilla stirring until combined. Gently stir in marshmallows. Pour cake batter into a greased and floured 9x13-inch baking pan. Bake in a 350 degree oven about 30 minutes. A toothpick in the center of the cake should come out clean. While cake is baking mix 1/2 cup butter, 1/4 cup cocoa and 1/4 cup cola and bring to boil. Add 2-1/2 cups powdered sugar and 1 teaspoon vanilla. This is the topping. Transfer cake in pan to a wire rack. Immediately spread cake with topping. Thoroughly cool cake on rack.
