Mint Chocolate Chip Layer Cake

Deliciously moist and fluffy mint chocolate cake layered with silky Swiss meringue buttercream and chocolate chips!

Mint and chocolate. One of my all-time favourite flavour combinations. If you love it as much as I do, you’re gonna love today’s recipe. How does a Mint Chocolate Chip Layer Cake sound to you?

Today’s recipe is infused with mint, in both the cake and the buttercream for extra minty goodness! And how can you not pair mint with chocolate chips? I’ve incorporated chocolate chips in 2 ways.

I’ve layered them in the cake along with the buttercream, and I’ve pressed them up against the cake, and on top. Because you can’t have too many. 😉
