And there’s something about mint that definitely tastes Christmas to me.
Dagmar and I jazzed up a plain box cake mix to make this yummy Christmas treat. It was easy to make and looked very festive on the buffet table.
Chocolate Mint Cake
1 box chocolate cake mix (we used a butter recipe)
1 small box of white chocolate pudding mix
1 stick of butter
1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract
1 bag of York Peppermint Patties baking pieces
1/2 cup chocolate chips
3 Tablespoons milk
1/4 cup crushed peppermint candies (ie: candy canes)
Place the cake mix, pudding mix, eggs and soft butter in a large mixing bowl. Mix until well blended. Add the peppermint extract. Stir in the Peppermint Patty baking bits.
Pour into a well greased Bundt pan.
Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes or until a toothpick placed in the center comes out clean.
Cool for 10 minutes on a cooling rack. Remove from Bundt pan and cool completely.
Melt the chocolate chips with the milk in a microwave safe bowl. Slowly drizzle over the cake as a glace. Sprinkle with the crushed peppermints.
