This is one of those recipes you'll want to share with all your friends. It's easy to make and sinfully rich, and the peppermint imparts a taste of Christmas.

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine 2 cups cake mix, milk, and oil, stirring mixture well. (Reserve remaining 2 cups cake mix for another use.) Stir in 1/3 cup crushed peppermint candies. Spoon batter into a lightly greased 8" square pan.

Step 2

Combine sugar and cocoa; sprinkle over batter. Pour boiling water over batter (do not stir).

Step 3

Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 35 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes before serving. Serve warm pudding cake with vanilla ice cream. Garnish, if desired.

Step 4

Note: For cake mix, we used Duncan Hines. There are 4 cups cake mix in the package. Seal the unused portion in a zip-top plastic bag, and make the dessert again!
