This is my mom's recipe. My kids love this one because it tastes like mint chocolate chip. It's so easy to put together.

This recipe is also from my mom and we grew up having this cake on special occasions. We call it Pistachio Creme de Menthe Cake. I love this cake and get many compliments when I bring it to potlucks. My recipe calls for 1/4 cup creme de menthe and 1/4 cup oil. This last time I made it I was out of creme de menthe and substituted 2 tsp. mint extract,2 TB water, and 6 drops food coloring (I found this substitute online), but I didn't like it as much. It came out too minty and just not as good overall. So, from now on I will always use the creme de menthe to get the wonderful results. My recipe calls for 6 oz dark chocolate - shredded, but I now use mini semi sweet chips (about 1 cup) rather than shredding a dark chocolate bar, it works great and so much easier. I put half the batter in the pan, top with 1/2 cup mini chips and add remaining batter on top of the chips. Bake for 40 min at 350. Let cake cool for about 35 min, then turn over onto plate. I melt the remaining chocolate (1/2 cup or more) and drizzle on top of cake. It's SO tasty. Enjoy!

Very easy and very good. Took it to my Bible study and both ladies on either side of me asked for the recipe! There was enough left over for my kids to have some and all 3 loved it! I did, however, use vanilla pudding instead of pistachio and also added extra chocolate chips.

this was terrible... the only thing that saved it was the chocolate chips and there weren't enough of them... maybe i used a different creme de menthe... will never make again... waste of good ingredients
