This cool little dessert is a no-bake and no-fuss treat!

1 1/2 tsp peppermint extract
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
4 drops red food color
1 cup whipping cream
1 cup coarsely chopped peppermint candy canes
24 small candy canes(optional)
1- Finely crush crackers. In a small bowl stir together crackers and granulated sugar. Add melted butter, toss until well combined. Press onto bottom of a 13x9x2 inch baking dish. Refrigerate until needed.
2- In a small saucepan combine chocolate morsels and 3/4 cup cream. Cook and stir over low heat until chocolate has melted and is smooth. Pour over the layer of graham cracker crust. Refrigerate all of this until needed.
3- In a large mixing bowl, beat softened cream cheese, sifted powdered sugar, peppermint extract and vanilla extract until light and fluffy. Beat in food coloring.
4-Gradually add 1 cup of whipping cream to the cream cheese mixture, beating on high speed for several minutes or until light and fluffy.
