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)

So check out this cute and peppermint recipe for Bundt Cake. Also while you’re at it, you can check out this Peppermint Chocolate Bark recipe as well (it’s been a big hit this year!)
