Chocolate peppermint patty

chocolate layer peppermint pattyWhen I’m going to a potluck supper, I love to experiment. This time I made a three layer chocolate cake into which I added a cup or so of broken up chocolate Andes mints (which you can’t get in Canada–I picked them up in the US) into the batter. In between the layers and on the outside, I made pale green mint buttercream. And on top and drizzling down the sides is semi-sweet chocolate ganache. It looked to me like a real old fashioned cake.
It was a hit and only one tiny piece came home with me last night. Yum!
