Mint Chocolate Chip Shamrock Mini Cakes

Mint chocolate chip cake is made from white cake mix, mint extract, and grated semi sweet chocolate. Mix the cake batter according to the directions on the box add mint extract and the grated chocolate just before pouring baking pans.  A few drops of green food coloring is optional.

I have collected many baking mold pans over the years.  This make holidays fun. It only takes a cake mix and some sprinkles to make the occasion special.  This pan makes 6 of these shamrock mini cakes.  It is an Wilton aluminum pan that doesn’t have nonstick coating on it.  I found it at a thrift store about 25 years ago and there is a 1983 date stamped on it .  I can usually get about 12 cakes from a cake mix with this pan.

      Thanks for your comment. My mint flavoring was strong that is why only a half teaspoon. So you may want to sample taste it starting with a half teaspoon and add more if needed.

  3. Good call, less can always be increased, but tough to take more away! 😉
