Starlight Mint Cake

Starlight Mint Cake recipe
photo by:kraft
Easy to make. I found that melting and rolling the mints on a silcon sheet made it easier to manipulate them without burning myself.

What You Need

pkg.   (2-layer size) white cake mix
cup   boiling water
pkg.   (3 oz.) JELL-O Cherry Flavor Gelatin
 starlight mints, divided
oz.  BAKER'S White Chocolate, melted
drops   red food coloring
cups   thawed COOL WHIP Whipped Topping

Make It

PREPARE cake batter and bake as directed on package for 2 (9-inch) round cake layers. Cool cakes in pans 15 min. Pierce cakes with large fork at 1/2-inch intervals. Add boiling water to gelatin mix; stir 2 min. until completely dissolved. Pour over cakes. Refrigerate 3 hours.

HEAT oven to 350ºF. Reserve 5 mints for later use. Place 12 of the remaining mints, about 4 inches apart, on parchment paper-covered baking sheet. Bake 5 min. or until mints are melted and each spreads out to 1-1/2- to 2-inch circle. Remove from oven; cool completely before removing from parchment paper. Meanwhile, repeat with remaining 11 mints.

BLEND 5 reserved mints in blender until finely crushed; place in small bowl. Stir in melted chocolate, sour cream and food coloring.

DIP bottom of 1 cake pan in warm water 10 sec.; unmold onto serving plate. Spread cake with chocolate mixture. Unmold second cake layer; place on first layer. Frost with COOL WHIP. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Decorate with melted mints.

Kraft Kitchens Tips

How to Bend Candy
To create a curvy effect on each melted candy, use a metal spatula to carefully remove melted candy from parchment while still warm and pliable. Slide candy onto the handle of a wooden spoon or any other object that will bend the candy. Cool completely before using to decorate cake.
For variety, prepare using green or orange starlight mints.
How to Melt Chocolate
For a quick and foolproof method, melt chocolate as directed in the "Easy Microwave Melting" directions on package.
