Easy Christmas Candy Cane Chocolate Cake

by Katrina - The Organised Housewife

We had a family BBQ recently and I was asked if I could bring along some of my caramel tarts, but after hearing that over 20 people would be there I thought I’d make a few extra goodies.

Earlier this year I made a super easy kit kat cake which was fun to make with the kids.  With this in mind I made a Christmas version, Christmas Candy Cane Chocolate Cake.  It was really easy to put together, more so because I decided to buy a pre-made mud cake.

Here is what you will need:

Mud cake, Philadelphia chocolate frosting, 2 packets of 32 mini candy canes, Christmas m&m’s and ribbon

Place cake on cake plate

Spread frosting over cake, this frosting will help the candy canes stick to the cake

Cut the candy canes to fit around the edges of the cake, they don’t need to be exactly the same size, go for the rustic look!

Place candy canes around cake

Add Christmas M&M’s to the top of cake

Tie ribbon around the candy canes and serve as soon as possible.
