Chocolate-Peppermint Icing

Use this icing with the Chocolate-Peppermint Cake. Peppermint extract is highly concentrated, so a very small amount is all that is needed.

    This cake is delicious and moist. I added about a tablespoon of sugar to the icing and will definitely be making this for mother's day!

    Made this cake for a friend. He loved the peppermint. I got a proposal.

    Don't like peppermint, then you cant go wrong sticking with Vanilla, I use the pure vanilla.

    The chocolate icing would probably be good without adding any additional flavor, but when I think about some of my favorite chocolate bars orange or hazelnut extract could be delicious.
