Layered Peppermint Holiday Dessert

One of my favorite things about the holiday season is planning our menus. I’m a list maker (yes, old school paper and pen), I begin by listing out dates which I know I’ll be planning meals for and start listing off which recipes I intend to make.

I like to use a lot of my old faithful recipes because they are tried and true and I’ll be honest the family expects them. Each year though I throw in a few new recipes and this year one of them is this delicious gem.

Let me tell you about the item that took this dessert to “over the top” delish. Torani Dark Chocolate Sauce, which I found at Meijer was exactly what this dessert needed to send it off the charts. It was really easy to find Torani Sauces in the ice cream topping section at Meijer.

Some tips for making Layered Peppermint Holiday Dessert:

  • Add crushed candy canes just prior to serving or they will ooze into the top layer.
  • Use an 8 oz tub of non-dairy whipped topping, it is divided between 2 of the layers.
  • Big fan of peppermint flavor? Add in 1/2 t peppermint extract to the cream cheese layer.
  • Refrigerate remaining dessert immediately after serving.
