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

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.
