853 Flares 853 Flares ×

Are you looking for an Easy Christmas Dessert?  If you are and you love mint, chocolate and whipped cream then this is the dessert for you.  Not only is it light and delicious but it’s also EASY making it a great addition to your recipe box for Christmas entertaining or anytime you want to wow without having to spend all day in the kitchen.  

Mint Chocolate Cream Torte

The recipe starts with a pre-made frozen pound cake {consider keeping one in your freezer to have on hand so you can make this at the drop of a hat..or oven glove}.  I made this recipe for the super fabulous It’s Christmas Extravaganza Blog Hop going on right now with a BIG LINKY PARTY starting tomorrow morning at 8 a.m. where you can link up your Holiday Awesomeness!

Ingredients
  1. Family Size Frozen Pound Cake
  2. 1/4 cup Chocolate Syrup
  3. 1 Box of Andes Candies
  4. 2 cups whipping cream, divided
  5. 1/2 cup powdered sugar, sifted and divided
Instructions
  1. Slice pound cake twice, making a total of 3 layers {I totally screwed mine up and they were not cut evenly but I was still able to 'hide' the imperfections with frosting and nobody seemed to mind once they were eating it!}.
  2. Brush the top of the two INNER layers {not the top of the torte} with the chocolate syrup. Let sit for 30 minutes for the syrup to be absorbed.
  3. Finely chop up all but 8 of the Andes Candies.
  4. Combine one cup of whipping cream and 1/4 cup of the sifted powdered sugar in a large mixing bowl mixing with electric mixture until stiff peaks form. Gently fold in finely chopped candies.
  5. Place one cake layer on a serving platter and top with 1/2 of the whipped cream mixture. Repeat this procedure with the next layer. Place top of cake on top but DO NOT cover this layer {the top} with the Cream Mixture.
  6. Wrap loosely and freeze until firm.
  7. Beat remaining whipped cream and sifted sugar together and frost sides and top of torte.
  8. Cover and freeze until ready to serve, up to 8 hours.
  9. Remove from freezer. Chop remaining 8 candies and sprinkle over torte before serving.

    • Could you use a hand mixer for this or do you need a stand mixer?

      • Hi Carrie,

        You certainly can use a hand mixer (I’m assuming it is electric) as long as you are able to incorporate enough air into the whipping cream while you are making it. Before I got my Kitchen Aid I had a Sunbeam hand mixer that worked well when making whipped cream. I hope that answered your question. :)

        Thanks so much for stopping by ~ Mary Beth

  10. Thanks for the recipe Mary Beth, I bet that would taste delicious!
