 I loved it then and I love it  now. It has a wonderful combination of chocolate, pecans, coconut, and marshmallow fluff!

4 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 Tablespoons cocoa

1 1/2 cup chopped pecans
 Cream butter and sugar, add eggs, (one at a time) cream well, add vanilla. Add cocoa and flour, mix. Stir in pecans and coconut. Bake 30 minutes at 350 degrees or until done.

While cake is warm, spread one large jar of marshmallow creme over cake. Let Cool.
Icing Ingredients:
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup condensed milk
1 box sifted powdered sugar
1/3 cup cocoa

Mix vanilla, butter and condensed milk. Add powdered sugar and cocoa. Spread over cooled cake.
