Candy Cane Chocolate Chip Pound Cake

Candy Cane Chocolate Chip Pound Cake - homemade pound cake loaded with crushed candy canes and chocolate chips and topped with a quick homemade peppermint buttercream - AMAZING! Definitely going on our holiday table!

This Candy Cane Chocolate Chip Pound Cake was inspired by my favorite holiday treat - the Peppermint Chocolate Chip milkshake at Chick-fil-a.  I love everything about that shake! I love the combination of peppermint and chocolate chips. I love the combination so much that I decided to add them to one of my favorite pound cake recipes.

This cake is SO good! It tastes like Christmas. ;) I topped the cake with a quick homemade peppermint buttercream. The buttercream really put the cake over the top. This would be a great dessert to take to a holiday potluck or to have as dessert after your Christmas dinner in a few weeks.
