When it comes to the holidays, I am all about the classic flavours. I like to hit each of them in their turn, and then I like to come back around and hit each of them again. Thus far this year, I’ve done gingerbread (several recipes, actually), I’ve done eggnog (and there’s more to come), I’ve done cranberry (naturally), and now I’ve moved on to chocolate peppermint. I think these are the major players in Christmas treats. There are any number of other classics that play more minor roles, but I’d say these are the big stars. The ones that everyone loves and that everyone expects to see make an appearance over the holidays.
So consider this low carb bundt cake as my chocolate peppermint masterpiece for the year. Actually, scratch that because I have another chocolate peppermint recipe coming soon and they’re both terrific. But this is a great one that feeds a crowd and looks stunning on a holiday dessert table.
It’s also mostly dairy-free and can be completely dairy-free if you leave of the white chocolate drizzle. For that lovely drizzle, I used a little of this xylitol-sweetened white chocolate from KZ Clean Eating. I don’t use it often because xylitol tends to raise my blood sugar a little more than erythritol does. But the holidays and this bundt cake just cried out for it! I also used just a wee bit of crushed sugar-free peppermints on top. Those are often sweetened with the unmentionables (maltitol, sucralose and the like) so I don’t use much of those either. It takes only about 2 or 3 candies to get enough to give the cake a festive look.
