Chocolate Peppermint bundt cake

Chocolate Peppermint Cake is a great way to use that bundt pan you have sitting in the cupboard that you never use 🙂 If you are like me I pull it out just a few times a year.

This is a super simple cake that can be make in a 9×13, but to make it extra special and for a really nice presentation at Christmas time, use that bundt pan!

This cake is super easy because you can use a cake mix to save some time. Of course if you have an awesome chocolate cake recipe you can use that in place, then just add the peppermint.
