Very nice way to "fancy up" a plain cake mix. I used sugar free/fat free pudding and fat free sour cream (just because it's what I keep on hand). The dog took a bite out of it (She's ok. I know she's not supposed to have chocolate but she got just a little bit and we caught it!) so it wasn't the prettiest thing (I cut a much bigger part out of it where the dog bit!) but it was tasty and enjoyed.

I had no problem with the moistness. I loved the chocolate and peppermint flavors. I don't like icings or glazes so I just served mine plain with some whipped cream to which I had added some peppermint extract and green food coloring. Tasted great.

Delicious cake. Very easy to make. I made two of these in less than a weeks time and they were a huge hit both times. I will be making this cake again. Thanks Kimbearly!
