Mint Chocolate Fudge Tea Cakes
I loved how these Mint Chocolate Fudge Tea Cakes turned out. I started with one of my favorite Cream Cheese Pound Cake recipes and then added Mint Fudge Flavored baking chips (think: Andes Mint Chips) to the batter. Then I iced the miniature Bundt cakes with a luscious chocolate frosting. The nice thing about the Mint Fudge Flavored Baking Chips (which I get at Walmart) is the mint flavoring doesn’t overpower the dessert. It’s just enough to set it off without being too much.
If you follow my blog at all, you know I baked about 1,200 Tea Cakes and other miniature treats for the holidays in 2022. Those included Red Velvet, Pina Colada, Starbucks Copycat Lemon, Strawberry, Apricot, Cranberry Orange, Pumpkin Cranberry, Pumpkin Toffee, Chocolate Chip Cheesecake, Cherry Cheesecake, Gingerbread, Almond Poppyseed and Chocolate Butter Pecan. All of them were drool-worthy. We are still sampling some of the extras that we froze in November. Yum.
Mint Chocolate Fudge Tea Cakes were really sensational. If you’re a chocolate addict, these are killer good. They are delectable enough for any kind of company, holiday party or special occasion. If you enjoy chocolate with a breath of mint, this dessert will be one you’ll be asking for frequently!
Mint Chocolate Fudge Tea Cakes are an absolute delight!
These chocolaty miniature Bundt cakes are amazing.
If you enjoy chocolate and mint together, this dessert can’t be passed up!
You’ll be swooning over every bite.
Here’s what I did.
I used these ingredients for the Tea Cakes.
Soften cream cheese and butter. (I left it out oh the counter over night).
Cream ingredients with an electric mixer.
Add sugar, eggs, and vanilla extract.
Cream ingredients again with an electric mixer until smooth.
Add Cake Flour, Cheesecake Pudding Mix and mint fudge-flavored baking chips.
Stir ingredients well to combine.
Grease and flour two 20-tin miniature Bundt pans. Spoon cake batter into tins about two-thirds full.
Bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. If baking more than one rack of Bundt pans at a time, rotate the Bundt pans on oven shelf racks after ten minutes of baking time to ensure even baking. Cool cakes completely before transferring to a wire rack.
I used these ingredients for the icing, plus water.
Place powdered sugar and cocoa in a mixing bowl. Add vanilla extract and water.
Whisk until ingredients are incorporated and smooth. Use only enough water to make a thick icing. Don’t add so much that it’s thin and runny.
Drizzle icing over top of individual Tea Cakes. Or you can put icing in a zip lock bag without the bottom. Snip off a corner and pipe icing over top of individual Tea Cakes.
Eat and enjoy!
Mint Chocolate Fudge Tea Cakes will cure any sweet tooth craving.
This is a great dessert for holidays, special occasions–even birthdays!
Each Tea Cake is flavored with mint fudge flavored baking chips. They are so, so good.
