  • Prepare cake batter and bake as directed on package for two 9-inch round cake layers. Cool cakes in pans 15 min. Pierce cakes with large fork at 1/2-inch intervals. Stir boiling water into dry jelly powder 2 min. until completely dissolved. Pour over cakes. Refrigerate 3 hours.
  • Heat oven to 350ºF. Crush 5 mints in blender; mix with melted chocolate, sour cream and food colouring. Place 1/2 the remaining mints, about 4 inches apart, on baking sheet covered with parchment paper. Bake 5 min. or until mints melt to form 2-1/2- to 3-inch circles. Cool before removing from baking sheet. Repeat with remaining mints.
  • Dip bottom of 1 cake pan in warm water 10 sec.; unmold onto plate. Spread with chocolate mixture. Unmold second cake; place on first layer. Frost with Cool Whip. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Decorate with melted mints.

How to Bend Candy

To create a curvy effect on the melted candy, use a metal spatula to carefully remove melted candy from parchment while still warm and pliable. Place over the handle of a wooden spoon or any other object that will bend the candy. Cool completely before using to decorate cake.


For variety, prepare using green or orange starlight mints.

How to Melt Chocolate

For a quick and foolproof method, melt chocolate as directed in the "Easy Microwave Melting" directions on package.
