Fudgy Grasshopper Cake . . . with a light mint flavor and two layers of topping, this chocolate mint cake is out of this world!
I love chocolate mint any time of year, but it really calls to me during the Christmas season. It’s just not holiday season around here without at least a couple mint chocolate treats, and this Grasshopper Fudge Cake is a new favorite.
It starts with a cake mix (I like Duncan Hines), so it comes together in minutes. And it slices up so pretty! You add a little green food coloring to some of the batter, then drop it by spoonfuls on top of the white batter.
Take a butter knife and gently pull it through the batter.
Those lovely swirls bake up so pretty, and are so fun to slice into when serving.
After the cake is baked and cooled, it gets topped with a simple chocolate fudge sauce that you whip up in the microwave. I dare you not to taste a spoonful; it is so decadent!
On top of that rich and creamy fudge layer is a light and fluffy layer of mint whipped cream. And of course, if you want, you can garnish the top with chopped or shaved Andes Mints. Perfection!
If you love chocolate mint like I do, you must try this cake. It is absolutely irresistible!
