The almond base: You need only five ingredients that are mixed together and pressed into the bottom of the pan. I used a square pan, but you can also use a round pan if you are looking to make a round cake.

The chocolate cake: Melt the butter and mix it with cocoa powder and sugar. Transfer the cocoa mixture into a bowl and mix with the remaining ingredients except for the chocolate chips. The chips are added to the batter at the end.

Pour the batter over the base and bake. The hardest part is over YEY! The cake takes only thirty minutes to bake.

The marshmallow topping: Once the cake is baked, top it with marshmallows and place it under the broiler for a minute or so, until the marshmallows start to melt and turn a golden colour. DONE!
