  • 1 box yellow or white cake
  • 2 small boxes instant chocolate pudding mix, I like devil’s chocolate or chocolate fudge flavor
  • 4 cups milk, I used 2 percent, whole works well too
  • mini marshmallows


  1. 1.Prepare cake as directed on package for a 9 x 13 pan.

    2.Cool in the pan for 14 to 17 minutes. Using the handle of a wooden spoon, poke holes all over the cake going all the way down to the bottom.

    3.Combine the pudding mix and cold milk in a large bowl. Whisk for about two minutes. Pour half of the pudding over the cake. It should run down to the bottom.

    4.Place the remaining pudding in fridge for about 5 to 7 minutes to thicken up just a bit. Take out and stir.

    5.Mix your desired amount of marshmallows into the pudding. Pour over cake then spread over cake as a frosting.

    6.Place in fridge for 1 to 2 hours.  Enjoy!
