Ingredients

Cake:

  • 1 box Devil’s Food Chocolate Cake Mix
  • 6- ounce container plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 package instant chocolate pudding mix
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup butter melted
  • 1/4 teaspoon peppermint extract
  • ½ cup Andes peppermint chips

Chocolate Ganache Topping:

  • 1 1/3 cups chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon peppermint extract
  • 1/4 cup Andes peppermint chips or crushed candy canes

Instructions

Cake:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a Bundt cake pan with cooking spray and set aside.
  • Beat together cake mix, Greek yogurt, chocolate pudding mix, eggs, water, melted butter and peppermint extract. Fold in peppermint chips.
  • Pour cake batter into the bundt pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 40-45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  • Cool in the pan on a wire rack for 25 minutes. Remove the cake from the pan and transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Chocolate Ganache Topping:

  • Pour chocolate chips in a medium sized bowl. Set aside.
  • Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. When the butter is just about melted, add the cream. Stir constantly but gently with a wire whisk. Heat until mixture just barely comes to a boil. Pour over the chocolate in the bowl.
  • Stirring gently, combine the chocolate with the butter/cream mixture until smooth. Stir in the peppermint extract. Let chocolate sit on the counter to cool while the cake is baking and cooling. Pour/drizzle over cooled cake. Garnish with peppermint chips or crushed candy canes.
