My goodness what peppermint lovers many of you are! I promised you a recipe for my peppermint dessert, so that is what I want to share today. You are probably already familiar with this recipe, but just in case there is one person out there who isn’t, this easy one is for you.
Here are the ingredients you will need:
1/3 cup butter, a 14.3 oz. package of Oreos, York Dark Chocolate and Peppermint Sundae syrup, 1.5 qt. container of vanilla ice cream (thawed), 10 oz. crushed peppermint candy, 8 oz. Cool Whip (thawed), 7.25 oz. chocolate Magic Shell , whipped cream
First, place 30 Oreos in a zip lock bag, and crush them.
Next melt the butter in a 9 x 13 in. dish. Add the Oreos, and mix them well with the butter. Press into the bottom of the dish to form the crust.
Next, squirt some of the York Sundae syrup all over the crust layer. Then dump the ice cream and Cool Whip into a large mixing bowl. Stir together. Crush the remaining Oreos from the package, and add them to the ice cream mix. Then add in the peppermint pieces (save a little to garnish with later,) and mix together.
Pour the ice cream mixture into the dish with the chocolate crust.
Cover with plastic wrap and freeze. After an hour, squirt the Magic Shell over the top of the dish and sprinkle with more crushed peppermint pieces. Recover with plastic wrap and freeze until firm.
To serve: cut slices, top with whipped cream, drizzle with more York Dark Chocolate and Peppermint Sundae syrup, and add a few pieces of crushed peppermint candy.
It looks messy, but that combination of peppermint and chocolate is heavenly! Here is the recipe in case you would like to have it.

Our last week of school before the Christmas break is in full force here, and the excitement level of the students is..um..quite high (to put it mildly! :)) I am looking forward to our break next week. We will be spending the holidays just relaxing here at home with family, except for our middle son who will be traveling to the West Coast on Christmas Eve. Will you be traveling for Christmas? If so, we would love to know where you are headed!
Until next time…
