Holiday Peppermint Triple Chocolate Bundt Cake

This Peppermint Triple Chocolate Bundt Cake is the perfect holiday dessert! It is SO easy to make, but don’t let that fool you– it is SO good and turns out perfectly every time!

When cooked properly, this Bundt cake ALWAYS turns out INCREDIBLY MOIST! So keep a close eye on the time. When you stick a tooth pick in, it should come out just slightly coated.

The Best Peppermint Triple Chocolate Bundt Cake Recipe

I want you to know that I have made this recipe over a dozen times, making slight adjustments with each one. Here is my proven recipe! But, with that being said, feel free to make your own adjustments! Everyone has different taste and its fun to mix in different types of chips and fillings.

Triple Chocolate Peppermint Bundt Cake Recipe
1-15.25 oz. Devil’s Food Cake Mix (chocolate works, too!)
1-3.4 oz. pkg. Chocolate Instant Pudding
1 c. Sour Cream
4 Eggs
1/2 c. Warm Water
1/3 c. Vegetable Oil
1/4 c. Chocolate Syrup (like Hershey’s Syrup for ice cream topping)
1 tsp. Vanilla
1/4 – 1/2 tsp. Peppermint Extract (depending on how strong you want the peppermint flavor to be!)
1 1/2 c. Andes Peppermint Baking Chips
1 container Cream Cheese frosting of choice
More Andes Peppermint Baking Chips for garnish

DIRECTIONS: Pre-heat oven to 325. Mix all ingredients, except peppermint chips, together in a stand mixer, hand mixer or by hand until well mixed. Add in chips and mix just until evenly dispersed. Pour into well greased Bundt cake pan. Bake for 50-70 minutes until a toothpick inserted comes out slightly coated but not wet. Remove from oven and let stand in pan for 20 minutes. Invert onto plate or cake stand. Let cool to touch before frosting (although it tastes best served slightly warm!!).

*Tip: I used the Great Value brand of Peppermint Baking Chips for this cake, but I think the brand name Andes Peppermint Baking Chips add more flavor!

Frosting the Chocolate Bundt Cake

Most often I use store-bought cream cheese frosting. This inexpensive one from Aldi isn’t bad but Betty Crocker Cream Cheese Frosting is my favorite. (Almost always someone asks me if it’s homemade!) And I always use a gallon size Ziploc bag with the corner cut off so that I can throw it away when I’m done!

Not sure about piping the frosting on? You can always warm it up for about 30 seconds in the microwave. Then give it a good stir and microwave it a little longer if it isn’t “pourable.” Once it is near liquid you can pour it on the cake so that it drizzles down the sides, I’m telling you, you can’t mess up frosting this chocolate Bundt cake!! :)

We often use Bundt cakes as a centerpiece when we entertain because they look so great, this Peppermint Triple Chocolate Bundt Cake being NO exception! And I know I mentioned it before, but I’m not kidding, if you bring this anywhere people WILL ask you for the recipe, so be prepared! ;)
