I was looking for a quick and easy Peppermint Dessert and was so pleasantly surprised when I found this one!  This is a great web site for all sorts of goodies it is

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


1 3/4 cups crushed keebler graham crackers
1/3 cup butter melted
1 1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
3/4 cup whipping cream
2 packages cream cheese softened
1/ 1/4 cup sifted powdered sugar
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.

5- Fold in crushed peppermint candies.  Spread over chocolate layer.  Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or until firm.
