Chocolate Lava Cake

We went out to dinner with Daryl & Amie last night and I asked if she had a good cake recipe. She asked, "Do you like chocolate? Cause I've got the cake if you do!" I called her as soon as I got home for the recipe and boy was she right. This cake forms a pudding layer at the bottom and a dense, creamy cake on top. It was indescribably good!

1 1/2 c. water

3/4 c. brown sugar

1/3 cup cocoa powder

1 (10 oz.) bag marshmallows

1 box chocolate cake mix (plus ingredients to make it)

1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

In a large oven safe dish, place water, brown sugar and cocoa powder. Mix until well blended. Pour marshmallows on top of that. Prepare cake mix according to package directions. Pour cake batter all over the top to cover the marshmallows. Sprinkle chocolate chips all over the top. Cover the dish with a lid (or with tinfoil) and bake at 350 degrees for about50 minutes.
