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…

  1. How do you get your crumbs to stay in place when spreading the cool whip/cream cheese layer? Mine turned into a crumbly mess every time I tried to even out the layer.

  2. Hello Lil’ Luna, I made this recipe (with a few slight variations to make it gluten free) for my families Christmas In July Party. I would like to share the recipe on my blog if that is fine by you. Thank you for the delicious and easy recipe.
