I hope I am not putting this on the wrong forum - apologies in advance if I am.
I have looked in the recipe section, but dont really see anything that really makes sense, unless I am looking in the wrong place.
I have a customer that states "i love chocolate cake with mint icing". She describes this as a similar taste to Andes Mints.
Does anyone have a recipe for this?
Thanks in advance.
You can do a chocolate buttercream and add mint flavoring or melted Andes candies to get the flavor.
Flavoring about 1/2 teasp - what about the candies?
Here is a recipe that contains Creme De Methe frosting with melted chocolate chips poured on top. You'll have to buy the liquor at the store (unless you live in Texas, like me, and have to buy it at a liquor store. It also comes in clear or green.) I got this from a recipe of mine named Creme De Menthe Brownies. It is really, really to-die-for and so delish. I also attached the link if you want to view the entire recipe. Hope this helps.
1/2 cup butter (soft)
2 cups powdered sugar
2 tbsp. green creme de menthe liquor
Mix with electric mixer. Spread over COOL brownies or cake.
1 6 oz. package chocolate chips
6 tablespoons butter
Melt together over low heat (or in microwave) and let cool slightly and spread over mint filling completely. Chill in fridge for a few hours.
