Mississippi Mud Cake

This recipe is from my Great Grandma Wanlass. We have been making it every Thanksgiving for a few years and it is one of my most favorite desserts!! I didn't get a picture before people started digging in. I wish I had saved a piece-I am craving it right now!
Mississippi Mud Cake
Mix together:
2 sticks of butter
2 cups sugar
1/4 cup cocoa
4 eggs
Slowly add:
1 1/2 cups sifted flour
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups chopped walnuts
Cook at 325 in a greased 9x13 pan for 35-40 minutes. Once out of the oven, spread a jar of marshmallow cream over the cake while it is still warm. Let cake cool completely.
1/2 cup cocoa
1/3 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla
1 box powdered sugar
1 stick of butter
Mix together and frost over cooled cake.
