We love to make and bake all things peppermint at Christmastime like peppermint whipped cream and peppermint Crispy Treats! It is one of those special flavors that we really only have during the holiday seasons so it always feels nostalgic and special. The red and white color combination always feels so festive too.
This peppermint cheesecake dip is fluffy and delcious and SO easy to make for holiday entertaining and parties. It only takes minutes to throw together and looks so beautiful and impressive!
As with any recipe, the quality of ingredients makes such a big difference in the finished product!

I love popping into my local store where they know me, especially at the floral counter. All I have to do is ask, and they help me to find the perfect ingredients for anything I am working on. I also highly recommend their Grocery Delivery and Drive Up & Go™ services for a convenient way to shop; they are a life saver.

How to Serve Peppermint Cheesecake Dip
I like to serve my peppermint cheesecake dip in a small to medium bowl with a pedestal base in the middle of a large ruffled pie plate, or small tray with sides, so I can fill it in with all of the dippers.
This peppermint cheesecake dip may be served with any number of things, but here are a few of my favorites:
- Chocolate (or white chocolate) Covered Pretzels
- Signature SELECT™ Milk Chocolate Biscuits
- Signature SELECT™ Cookie Thins (gingerbread and classic mint)
- chocolate graham crackers
- wafer cookies

- mini chocolate chip cookies
It is an easy and beautiful presentation!
