Mini Chocolate Bundt Cake with Peppermint Frosting

There’s nothing like peppermint candies to remind me that the holidays are here. Paired with fresh whipped cream spiked with peppermint extract, the red and white sprinkles, plus frosting, are a taste of winter wonderland. Because the frosting is so refreshing, chocolate cake is a good option for rounding out the flavors. If you feel like adding more depth, try incorporating some instant espresso coffee grounds to the batter. You’ll most likely want to eat the cake for breakfast at this point; don’t worry, I won’t judge if you do.
