The best part of the holidays is the peppermint patty after a delicious dinner. Do yourself one better and have a slice of this Peppermint Patty cake.A dark dense chocolate layer cake filled with a creamy mint frosting and enrobed in semisweet chocolate ganache. The perfect way to finish a meal or enjoy with coffee in front of the fire.
Beat butter at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy, about 1 minute. Add powdered sugar and mix on medium speed for 1-2 minutes.
Microwave chocolate chips and whipping cream in a 2-quart microwave-safe bowl at MEDIUM (50% power) 2 1/2 to 3 minutes or until chocolate begins to melt.
The cake recipe is originally from the Hershey Cocoa can from my childhood, so in the 80s, it is still the best and easiest cake I make.
