How To Make chocolate marshmallow cake with ganache

  • 1
    Mix cake according to directions on box. Bake.
  • 2
    Poke holes in cake. Poor caramel sauce over cake while still warm. Adds incredible moisture.
  • 3
    Place marshmallows atop cake immediately after caramel has been added. You want these to partially melt. I like the flat large marshmallows for this but any will work.
  • 4
    Drizzle caramel sauce over marshmallows Once cooled. Make ganache and pour over cake.
  • 5
    Ganache Bring butter, milk and cocoa to a boil. Remove from heat. Add 8 heaping T of powdered sugar to hot mixture and blend well. Drizzle. Note: x2 for ganache is my preferred method. The second portion served warm on the side so guests can add to their serving.
