Chocolate Mint Cake



I hope everyone had a safe and fun 4th of July.... So today I had this massive craving for chocolate that simply could not be ignored, you know the kind I speak of. I had all of the fixings to make a standard chocolate cake, but OH NO.... we did not stop there. I also had a few other items that I knew would take this simple cake to a whole new level of YUM!!! A big piece of cake along with a glass of cold milk and I was good to go.


Cake:

1 - Betty Crocker Triple Chocolate Fudge Cake Mix
Water, Oil & Eggs

Filling:

1 - 4oz. - Serving White Chocolate Instant Pudding
2 C. - Milk
1/2 Tsp. - Peppermint Extract

Frosting:

1 - Betty Crocker Whipped Chocolate Frosting
1/2 C. - Andes Mint Baking Bits

Make according to box directions and bake at 350 degrees in a well sprayed glass cake pan or at 325 degrees if using a dark or non stick pan. After the cake is done baking remove from the oven and cool for 15 minutes. In a medium sized bowl beat together the pudding mix, milk and extract for about 2 minutes, when ready pour over the top of the cake and cover loosely with foil or plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator for 2 hours. When cool and the pudding is set frost carefully with the frosting and sprinkle on the candy bits. Keep loosely covered in the fridge.

Choclate and mint, oh so good. Never thought to use andes in a frosting. Great idea. They only seem to pop up at Christmas time here. Damnit.

Nothing does it like a big piece of chocolate cake and a glass of milk. The mint makes it perfect.

This cake looks delicious! I have a history of dressing up boxed cake mixes but I have never tried this combination before. I'm sure it is a winner.

That cake looks really good. I used to hate the combination of chocolate and mint but lately I'm really starting to like it.
