{Recipe} Thin Mint Truffle Chocolate Bundt Cake

You can never go wrong with mint and chocolate...
Especially when you add Girl Scout Thin Mints to the mix.
This cake has a faint mint taste due to the truffles and a mint buttercream frosting.

Thin Mint Chocolate Truffle Bundt Cake

1 Batch Thin Mint Truffles
1 Box Chocolate Cake Mix
1 Batch Mint Buttercream Frosting

Make the cake mix according to package directions.
Pour into a greased bundt pan.
Drop as many of the truffles as you want into the batter. (I used almost the whole batch)
Bake as directed.
As the cake bakes, it will grow around the truffles, so no need to push them down or cover them.
The truffles will also bake, turning them into a soft cookie with a different texture than the cake.
Once done baking, allow to cool for 5 minutes then transfer to a cooling rack.
Allow the cake to cool completely before frosting.

Thin Mint Truffles

1 sleeve Thin Mint Cookies
6 oz Cream Cheese, softened

Use a food processor to turn the cookies into crumbs.
Mix the crumbs with the cream cheese until well incorporated and holds it's shape.
Roll into 1 inch balls then refrigerate.

Mint Buttercream Frosting

1 stick Butter, softened
1 pound Powdered Sugar
1/4- 1/2 teaspoon Mint Extract
2 Tablespoons Milk, to desired consistency
1-2 drops green food coloring, optional
1 pinch Edible Disco Dust, optional

Cream the butter.
Add powdered sugar and mint extract.
Slowly add milk until you get the consistency you want for piping.
Using a 1M frosting tip follow I Am Bakers instructions for frosting roses.
Fill in ant spots between flowers with little star dollops of frosting.
Sprinkle with the pinch of edible disco dust to give it that faint minty sparkle.
