Cream butter and sugar. Add eggs and vanilla. Beat until fluffy. In a separate bowl combine flour, baking powder, salt, and cocoa. Add to cream mixture. Stir in nuts. Spread in a greased jelly roll pan. Bake at 350F for 15-18 minutes. Sprinkle marshmallows evenly over cake. Return to oven for 2-3 minutes.
