    1 (18.25 ounce) package chocolate cake mix (pudding in the mix)
    cooking spray
    Coconut topping:
    1/2 cup fat-free milk
    1/2 cup granulated sugar
    9 large marshmallows
    2 cups flaked sweetened coconut
    1/2 teaspoon cornstarch

    1 Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
    2 To prepare cake, combine first 4 ingredients in a large bowl, and beat at low speed of a mixer until moist. Beat mixture at medium speed 2 minutes; pour into a 13 x 9-inch baking pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean.

    4 To prepare frosting, combine powdered sugar, cocoa, 2 tablespoons milk, and margarine in a small saucepan; bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Remove mixture from heat; add chocolate chips and corn syrup, stirring until chips melt. Spread frosting gently over coconut layer. Cool until set.
