Mary's Mounds Cake

This is a family recipe I got from Mary Selden. If you like coconut, you are in for a treat!

1 pkg. chocolate cake mix (cook in 9 x 13 according to directions on box)

3/4 c. milk
3/4 c. sugar
24 large marshmallows
14 oz coconut

Heat first 3 ingredients in saucepan and stir until marshmallows are melted. Then add coconut and mix thoroughly. Spread on hot cake.

1 stick butter
12 oz. semi sweet choc chips

Melt in microwave or on the stove. Stir until creamy. Spread on top of cake. Icing sets up better if put in the frige.

Note: I made this once with milk chocolate chips instead of semi sweet and the chocolate didn't spread. So unless you want be globs of chocolate on top (like Mandi) use semi sweet chips for sure.
