  • It’s SO simple!

I found it on Pinterest via the lovely Liz at Liz on Call, and I fell in love with this recipe the first time I made it!

Here’s what you need:

1 box white cake mix – baked per instructions
1 small box instant white chocolate pudding mix – mixed per instructions
1 (8 oz.) container cool whip
1/4 tsp peppermint extract
Peppermint crunch pieces for top

Every time I take this cake to a Christmas gathering, I get TONS of compliments on it. People LOVE it! And the fact that it’s not full of expensive ingredients and doesn’t take hours to make is just…the icing on the cake!
