Mississippi Mud Cakes from the Cookie Post
As teenagers in Manhattan Beach in the late 70s, my sisters and I spent many summers at the beach, and not a day went by that we didn't visit the Cookie Post, a small bakery right on the strand. We always ordered their Mississippi Mud Cake - brownies with a layer of marshmallow cream, chocolate frosting, walnuts. The Cookie Post has been out of business for years, and we've been trying to recreate the mud cake for about as long without any luck. Can anyone recommend a local restaurant or bakery that may have something similar on their menu? Or a recipe? Thanks.
