Thin Mint Cake

Ingredients

  • CHOCOLATE CAKE:
  • 1 box Devil's Food Cake Mix
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 C. butter melted
  • 1 C. milk
  • 1/2 C. sour cream
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • THIN MINT FROSTING:
  • 12 Thin Mints crushed (I used a blender)
  • 1 C. butter softened (If you like a lot of frosting you can add an extra 8 oz. cream cheese or 1/2 C. butter)
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp. peppermint extract
  • 1 Tbsp. milk
  • 2-4 C. powdered sugar
  • green food dye

Instructions

  1. 1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease 2- 9 inch pans (or 8 inch pans are my fav).
  2. 2. Combine cake mix, eggs, butter, milk, sour cream and vanilla extract until smooth and then pour into pans and spread out evenly.
  3. 3. Bake for 17-22 minutes or until an inserted knife comes out clean.
  4. 4. Let cool.
  5. 5. Thin Mint Frosting: Beat butter until smooth. Add vanilla, peppermint, milk, and 2 cups powdered sugar. Continue to add powdered sugar until you reach your desired consistency (you'll want it spreadable). Use food dye to get a green color and then stir in your crushed Thin Mints.
  6. 6. Frosting cooled cake and top with extra Thin Mints and chocolate sauce (mine was just store bought but you can make a ganache using chocolate chips and cream!)
