Peppermint Candy Cake

The holidays are fast approaching and I don't know about you, but I am getting tired already.  This recipe is super easy and soooo yummy!  So, if you need to take the dessert this year, you cannot fail with this one!
1 package (18-1/4 ounces) white cake mix
1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract
1/2 teaspoon red food coloring
1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons crushed peppermint candies, divided
1 cup confectioners' sugar
1 tablespoon 2% milk

Prepare cake batter according to package directions. Transfer 1 cup to a small bowl; stir in the extract, food coloring and 1/2 cup crushed candies.   Spoon 2 cups of remaining batter into a greased and floured 10-in. fluted tube pan. Carefully top with peppermint batter; do not swirl. Top with remaining plain batter.

Bake at 350° for 35-45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool completely.   Combine confectioners' sugar and milk; drizzle over cake. Sprinkle with remaining crushed candies.
