1 package (1 pound, 2.25 ounce size) devils food cake mix
2 cups sour cream
2/3 cup canola oil
3 eggs
2 tablespoons peppermint liqueur, such as Peppermint Schnapps, or water
1 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips


6 tablespoons butter or margarine, at room temperature
2 cups confectioners' sugar
1/4 teaspoon peppermint extract
2 cans (16 ounce size) milk chocolate frosting
mini chocolate covered peppermint cream candies, such as peppermint patties, quartered, optional


CAKE: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter and flour 2-8 inch round cake pans.

In bowl at low speed beat cake mix with sour cream, oil, eggs and liqueur until just combined, about 1 minute. Increase speed to medium, beat until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Stir in chocolate chips.

Divide batter between pans. Bake 30-35 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool on racks 10 minutes. Remove from pans; cool completely on racks.

FILLING: In bowl with mixer on medium speed beat batter until fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add sugar, 2 Tbsp water and peppermint extract. Beat until fluffy, about 2 minutes; refrigerate until ready to use.

ASSEMBLY: Place 1 cake layer on serving plate; spread filling over cake to within 1/2 inch of edges. Top with remaining cake layer. Spread top and side with frosting. Garnish with peppermint candies, if desired.

I love this cake made this for a group of people and it was in a cake march to raise money. they all shared it. I put peppermints around the outside in 4ths and chocolate curls on top and broken up hard peppermint in-between the layers with chocolate frosting and mousse in the middle. It was a hit.thanks
