Chocolate Peppermint Bundt Cake

It’s Christmas time and as many of you regular readers know, I’m a huge peppermint fan. So per my pattern of obsessive behavior, here’s another: Chocolate Peppermint Bundt Cake.

I tend to think everyone needs a few easy and elegant dessert options, especially now in the thick of  holiday crazy. And no, I’m not complaining. I love all the holiday madness. It comes once a year and I look forward to it starting in September.

My only fail so far this season has been when the little guy came to my room and asked me, “Ready for our hot chocolate and Christmas movie, Mom?” Well, my answer of “tomorrow” turned into three days later. Awesome mom fail #200-and-something.

Thankfully, I’ve made it up to him by now and we’ve been enjoying holiday tradition ever since. Although, I usually throw dessert in with mine–and why not? I’m pregnant, so eating for two is in full force (okay, so I don’t really need that excuse other than to justify my extra helping).
