Easy Chocolate Filled Angel Food Cake

I am going to make this sometime soon. If not this weekend then probably for a get together I'm having next month. Maybe both, it just sounds yummy.

1 10-inch angel food cake
32 large marshmallows
1/3 cup water
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Whipping cream
Preparation:

Slice 1 inch off top of angel food cake and set aside. Cut down into cake and carefully remove core of the cake, leaving a wall approximately 1-inch thick on bottom and sides. Place cake on plate.

In medium saucepan combine marshmallows, water, and salt. Cook, stirring constantly, over low heat until marshmallows have melted. Add chocolate chips and vanilla, stirring until chocolate has melted and mixture is smooth. Cool to room temperature. Whip 1 cup heavy whipping cream until soft peaks form; fold into the cooled chocolate mixture. Spoon chocolate mixture into hollowed cake; replace top section of cake. Frost with additional whipped cream or sprinkle with sifted confectioners' sugar.
