Holiday Blog Challenge - Day 6

Fabulous Holiday Blog Challenge

Welcome to the Sixth day of 
Amber & Neely's Fabulous Holiday Blog Challenge!! 
I will be blogging about one Holiday themed topic everyday for the next 2 weeks!! (11/28 -12/9)
If you want more information, or want to join the fun click HERE for more information.

Today's topic is: Christmas dessert/treat recipe

 hmmmm, there are so many sweets but one of my favorites and probably most easiest is Peppermint Cheesecake. It is one of the yummiest desserts ever! What's that? You wanted the recipe? Wellll, I guess you can have it. ;) 

Peppermint Cheesecake, in 3 steps
2 pkg Cream Cheese
1/2 C Sugar
1/2 tsp Vanilla
2 Eggs
1 C Starlight Mints, Crushed
1 Pre-made Graham Cracker Pie Crust
1 C Cool Whip topping

1. Preheat oven to 350*F. Beat cream cheese, sugar and vanilla with an electric mixer until well blended. Add eggs; mix until blended. Stir in 1/2 cup of the crushed mints. 
2. Pour into crust; sprinkle with 1/4 cup of the remaining crushed mints.
3. Bake for 40 mins or until the center is almost set. Cool. Refrigerate several hours or overnight. Top with whipped topping and the remaining 1/4 cup crushed mints just before serving. 

To crush the mints, I just unwrapped them, put them in a ziplock bag and used a rolling pin or a can of soup to crush the candies.
I hope you like it! It is very, very yummy! mmmmmm


  1. Dont know about the mint part but Cheese cake is great. Personally my fav is Pumpkin Pie, for both Thanksgiving and Christmas. Egg nog a close second for Christmas. non-alcohol.

  2. Umm can I have some now please?
