Peppermint Chocolate Delight

LilyPeppermint Chocolate Delight - Nilla wafer crust, cream cheese layer, chocolate pudding layer, whipped cream and candy cane pieces. It's our new favorite Christmas dessert!

Hello, it’s me Lily again!

Guess what we did this week? We wrote letters to Santa! Do you know what I’m asking for? That’s okay – I don’t know either. We get one gift from Santa and right now I can’t decide if I want a Lip Gloss Making Kit, a Lego set or Shopkins. Hopefully, I’ll figure it out soon. ;D

Remember last week when we made the Christmas Popcorn?? It was so good, but I have a recipe today that I think is even better. It’s called Peppermint Chocolate Delight. We made it a few weeks ago and it was so good that it was gone so fast. It has a cracker crumb bottom, cream cheese layer, chocolate pudding layer and whipped topping with candy cane pieces. I think it’s another great dessert to make for Christmas. The chocolate and peppermint combo is amazing. In fact, I might have to try making chocolate dipped peppermints because I love the combination. Here is what you’ll need to make it…
