I really wanted to break out my Nordic Ware Snowflake pan again this year and chocolate was calling my name. I LOVE chocolate and peppermint together and this cake didn’t disappoint. The flavors were delicious together and the cake was moist and fudgy. I love that it was so rich that a frosting isn’t needed, and really would have made this way too sweet and rich if it had been frosted. A little powdered sugar was pretty and all that was needed. A piece of this cake and a cup of tea makes a perfect ending to a meal.
