Easy Holiday Bundt cake to make: Chocolate Peppermint Bundt Cake
Chocolate Peppermint Bundt Cake
Peppermint is always in abundance during the Holiday season!
Add some Chocolate to go along with it and you’ve got yourself a sweet recipe. I like to cheat by using box cake mixed. Hey.. don’t judge me. I’m all about taking shortcuts where the food/desserts still taste ah-mazing but I was able to cut a few corners (and save some money too)
