Mint Chocolate Cake

Mint Chocolate Cake

Mint chocolate cake is a stunning combination of creamy mint frosting and fudgy dark chocolate cake. Decorating is easy with either a chocolate ganache drip or mini chocolate chips.

If mint chocolate chip is your go-to ice cream flavor, you are going to absolutely LOVE this mint chocolate cake! It starts with rich, moist, fudgy chocolate cake layers and is finished with a light and refreshing mint buttercream.

I like to color the frosting mint green to be reminiscent of the classic ice cream, but it will still taste just as good without the food coloring. With the pretty mint green color, this cake would be perfect for St. Patrick’s Day!
