Merry Christmas everyone! As if this time of year isn’t busy enough, things have been totally hectic around here. Add a bad stomach virus to the mix, and you’ve got complete chaos!
Fortunately I’m feeling much better, which is great now that many of the festivities are in full swing. We had this beauty for dessert yesterday – easy enough to make when you’re not up to lots of kitchen time, but still very, very delicious. Top it with some hot fudge and you’ve got a great holiday treat.
Need a last minute dessert for today or tomorrow? Give this a shot – you won’t be disappointed.
Merry Christmas to all! 🙂
Frozen Peppermint Cheesecake

1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup butter, melted

Spray a 9 inch springform pan with cooking spray. Combine cookie crumbs with sugar and butter and press into pan.
In a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese until fluffy. Add condensed milk and beat until combined. Stir in crushed candy canes, then fold in whipped cream.
