Dark Chocolate Snack Cake

This recipe is a lot like chocolate sheet cake or Texas sheet cake with a couple twists. Made in a 9″x13″ pan and uses cola, marshmallows and cinnamon to add some extra zing! I believe I found this recipe a while ago in an old Taste of Home magazine. I will post a picture tomorrow when I cut into it with the Fam! But for now it’s midnight…the kitchen is closed, goodnight.
