I heard somewhere that there is a recipe that used Melted icecream as the liquid in a cake....

I was asked to make a Mint Chocolate Chip flavored cake...

I thought this method would be cool to try.. Does anyone have a recipe that does this or have a better idea?

I'd probably do:

1. Favorite chocolate cake recipe. Filled with buttercream that's been flavored with mint, tinted a light green, and had chocolate shards/chips folded into it.

2. Favorite chocolate cake recipe with a half tsp of mint added to batter. Any filling.

3. White cake with mint flavoring (replacing almond or some vanilla) and a little green coloring and chocolate shards/mini-chips folded into batter. Dark choc ganache filling.

I made some Mint Chocolate Cupcakes recently and what I did was make chocolate cake and add Creme de Menthe (Lorann oil) into it, then I made a SMBC and put in some Creme de Menthe as well. I added a little green food coloring to the SMBC and then sprinkled Andes chips (from the baking aisle by the choc chips) on top.

While I don't like the flavor in general (I don't believe mint and chocolate should go together), I found that the SMBC was delicious and the smell was pretty spot on. I was told the taste was awesome.

I will post a picture of one of them right now. I made Lego toppers.

It is pretty obvious that the only thing that doesn't go with chocolate is... is... is... okay, so maybe there isn't anything that doesn't go with chocolate, but mint? How can someone who came up with one of the cleverest monikers on CC spread such vicious libel! tsk tsk tsk...

HAHAHA! I cracked up when I read this. Okay, I know I'm in the minority with my preference, but I feel like mint really overpowers and takes away from the wonderful, awesome deliciousness that is chocolate. But to be honest, that's about the ONLY thing I think doesn't go with chocolate. Please don't judge me based on that though, I'm really a sane, normal person! icon_razz.gif

I don't like mint chocolate chip. I feel like I'm eating toothpaste.
But its the birthday boys favorite. I'm only making 1/2 mint chocolate chip because I have a feeling noone else will like it. lol. How does an 8 year old love mint.

Here is a recipe using melted ice cream as an ingredient in the cake batter. I have not tried it but it sure sounds good!

I would do white cake with creme de menthe flavoring, green food color, and mini chocolate chips and then chocolate ganache filling. Oh yum. Now I want some.

I honestly do not think melted ice cream would make it have a strong flavor...would probably just give a hint, like the pudding mixes do.

So I tried it. Just came out of the oven
I added a little water and about a 1/4 cup of oil cause people said it was dry.
It came out super moist .

The flavor was very mild of mint but you can taste it.

They want buttercream so I think I'm going to make a minty chocolate chip butter cream to amp up the flavor
