Mint Chocolate Cake

Mint Chocolate CakeSmooth, rich, luxurious chocolate complimented by cool, refreshingly sharp mint is another of my favorite flavor combinations. Here is an easy dessert recipe for Mint Chocolate Cake.

Ingredients:
Chocolate Cake
2/3 cup butter, softened
1-2/3 cups sugar
3 eggs
2 cups all-purpose flour
2/3 cup baking cocoa
1-1/4 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1-1/3 cups milk

Frosting
1/2 cup butter, softened
2 cups confectioners' sugar
1 tablespoon water
1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract
3 drops green food coloring (optional)

Topping
1-1/2 cups milk chocolate chips
6 tablespoons butter, softened
1/4 teaspoon peppermint extract

Procedures:

Pre-heat oven to at 350°. Lightly grease and flour a 15" x 10" x 1" baking pan; set aside.

In a bowl, cream butter and sugar until fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.

In another bowl, combine flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt; add to creamed mixture alternately with milk, beating until smooth after each addition.

Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake for 35-40 minutes or until tester inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack.

While waiting for the cake to cool, prepare the frosting. Combine the butter, confectioner's sugar, water, peppermint extract and food coloring (optional) until smooth. Invert cooled cake on a platter or cake stand. Spread frosting on top and sides.

For topping, melt chocolate chips and butter over a double boiler or microwave. Stir until smooth. Add in extract and mix until combined. Spread over frosting and refrigerate until set.
