I found this Mississippi Mud Cake recipe in Southern Living and modified it to fit a gluten and dairy free lifestyle. This is so delicious no one will ever suspect it is a special-diet recipe.

  7. Stir together first 3 ingredients in a medium saucepan over medium heat until butter is melted. Cook, stirring constantly, 2 minutes or until slightly thickened; remove from heat. Beat in powdered sugar and vanilla at medium-high speed with an electric mixer until smooth.
