Can you believe Christmas is two weeks away! This holiday season is going by so fast. Before we know it Christmas will have come and gone and we will be heading into the New Year.
Remember when you were young and Christmas seemed to be far away? Two weeks couldn’t get here soon enough. As soon as January came, thinking of Christmas seemed like centuries away. For me, Christmas and my birthday are all within ten days of one another so I celebrate everything all at once. I never liked that very much when I was a kid. Now I can’t even remember how old I’m going to be. The last few weeks I was thinking I was turning 37. I just realized I’m turning 38. That is how fast time is flying by.
I don’t mind slowing things down to sit back and enjoy a piece of moist chocolate cake. Make it from scratch and add in some mint to make it festive and even better. This is such an easy cake mix to make. It is actually my staple, go to chocolate cake mix except I just had fun poking some holes in it and adding mint extract. What is not to love with a creamy pudding topping, which also makes frosting the cake a breeze since the pudding doubles as the frosting. Sprinkle with some crushed creme de menthe candies like Andes or how about some crushed Thin Mint Girl Scout cookies for a simple, moist and delicious chocolate dessert.Print
