Peppermint Schnapps Chocolate Cake

I went to an office party and a coworker brought in a Peppermint Schnapps Chocolate Cake. This cake was awesome. It was a very moist chocolate cake with a hint of peppermint.  He used a Rum Cake recipe and replaced the Rum with Peppermint Schnapps. Replaced the Yellow Cake mix with replaced the vanilla pudding with food instant pudding. There you have it, your Peppermint Schnapps Chocolate Cake. Here’s the recipe and I will go ahead and substitute the right ingredients for the peppermint schnapps chocolate cake.
