Melt-In-Your-Mouth Mint Chocolate Cake. | How Sweet It Is

1 2/3 cups all-purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 cup cocoa

1 1/3 cups sugar

1 1/2 sticks butter, at room temperature

2 eggs

1 tablespoon good-quality vanilla extract

1/3 cup sour cream

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/4 teaspoon peppermint extract

1/2 cup boiling water

1/2 cup chocolate chips, tossed with flour

3/4 cups mint chips, tossed with flour

Preheat oven to 325.

In a food processor, add all ingredients except for boiling water, chocolate and mint chips, and blend. Once combined, stream in boiling water and blend until chocolate batter is smooth. Remove lid and blade, scraping off any excess batter. Toss chocolate and mint chips with flour (this prevents them from falling to the bottom), and fold into batter.

Spray loaf pan with cooking spray and pour in batter. Set loaf pan on a baking sheet and put in oven. Bake for 50-60 minutes, or until cake is no longer jiggly. I baked mine for 60 minutes exactly. Let cake cool completely before removing it from pan.

Note: I used a 10 x 6 1/2 x 3 loaf pan.

Dark Chocolate Glaze

8 ounces dark chocolate (I used Lindt)

Melt chocolate in either the microwave or a double boiled and drizzle over cake.
