Peppermint Hot Chocolate Cake

Who doesn’t love a good peppermint hot chocolate during the holiday season? That’s why Cool Sass decided to turn these amazing flavors into a dessert! This recipe also functions with brownies if cake isn’t your favorite dessert, perfect for parties of any kind!


What You’ll Need:

  • 1 box devils food cake mix (along with the ingredients required on the box such as eggs, oil, water, etc.)*
  • 1 tbsp. mint extract
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup chocolate pudding, prepared
  • 2 cups marshmallows
  • 3 peppermint candy canes, crushed
  • 1 bar of dark chocolate

*  Brownie mix can be substituted for cake mix if desired

How To Do It:

  1. Preheat the oven according to the instructions on the box.
  2. Prepare the cake mix according to the instructions on the box. For a fluffy cake texture, Cool Sass recommends adding wet ingredients first and then sifting the cake mix prior to combining with the others.
  3. Add one cup marshmallows, semi-sweet chocolate chips, pudding and mint extract to cake batter.
  4. Place into a 13 x 9 in. pan and bake according to the instructions on the box.
  5. With five minutes left on the timer, melt 1/2 of the bar of dark chocolate to be used as a glaze.
  6. Once cake has cooled sufficiently, add chocolate glaze.
  7. Garnish with 3 crushed candy canes and the remaining cup of marshmallows.
  8. Enjoy your holiday dessert!
