Ingredients

Cake:

Toppings:

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350º. Grease a 9 x 13 pan and set aside.
  2. Mix cake mix according to package instructions using 2 eggs and removing 3 tablespoons of water from the water called for on box. Add creme de menthe along with the water. If you’d like a greener cake, add a few drops of green food coloring.
  3. When mixture is smooth, scrape it into the prepared pan and smooth the top. Bake according to the box instructions.
  4. When cake is done a toothpick inserted in the center will come out clean. Cool cake completely.
  5. When cake is cool, carefully spread fudge sauce over top.
  6. Whip cream to soft peaks. In another large bowl, whip the powdered sugar, cream cheese and creme de menthe until lightened and smooth. Stir in whipped cream and whip to firm peaks. Spread over fudge.
  7. Chill for 4 hours before serving.

Notes

The total amount of liquid used in the cake will be the same as what was called for on the box. You will need to remove 3 tablespoons of water from what is listed on the box and replace it will 3 tablespoons of creme de menthe.

Use a homemade white cake baked in a 9 x 13- inch pan instead of a cake mix if desired. Just add the creme de menthe to the batter.

Total time does not include cooling and chilling times.
