These are my favorite chocolate cake recipe (from the back of the Hershey's cocoa tin) with a bit of Mint Chocolate ganache in the middle and then finally the Peppermint Buttercream on top. I meant to only tint the frosting with green but it ended up a bit brighter than I expected. Ooops. A little gel coloring goes a long ways...
Truly they are NOT as green as this picture. Close though!
I'm never really a frosting girl so a little of this frosting would have been good for me. It was very minty and very creamy. The block of cream cheese really made a difference I think! The ganache was barely noticeable. I had issues with the squeeze bottle. The recipe suggested using a squeeze bottle but I think that's a bad idea. Too thick. Pastry bag next time, for sure.
This green is really freaking me out! I don't think I've ever really colored frosting. Well, not since the blue cookie monsters. I'm sure they'll get eaten, right?
