I am not the greatest baker in the world. I can bake, but I would much rather not spend all of that time in a hot sweaty kitchen. That said, there are times when I really don’t want to take a store bought cake to a party or event. This chocolate peppermint bundt cake is not only delicious, but it’s super easy to make and everyone will think you spent forever in the kitchen making it.
1 box Dark Chocolate Cake Mix (I used Pillsbury Moist Supreme)
3 Eggs (follow box)
1 cup Water (follow box)
1/3 Cup Oil (follow box)
1 tsp Peppermint Extract
8 oz Semi Sweet Morsels
4 oz Heavy Cream
10 Peppermint candies
Step 1: Follow Box directions to mix cake for bundt pan, but add peppermint extract to batter. Bake according to box directions.
Step 2: Place morsels in microwave safe bowl. Add heavy cream. Heat in 30 second increments and then stir until shiny and well blended. If mixture seems too thick add a bit more cream.
Step 3: Drizzle chocolate ganache over cake allowing it to drizzle down sides.
Step 4: Crush peppermint candies in food processor. Sprinkle over chocolate ganache as a garnish.
