You will want to make this Peppermint Chocolate Chip Tres Leches Cake a day in advance. The cake needs time to absorb all the milks. Hold off on adding any crushed peppermints to the top of the cake until you are ready to serve. The crushed peppermints may bleed into the whipped cream if you add them too early.
