12 Days of Christmas Treats: Peppermint Cloud dessert

Sunday , 18, December 2011 Leave a comment

*This is a dessert that reminds me of my grandmas house.  I don’t know what it is called exactly, this works for me!  I bet you’ve noticed I like mint, but I promise – this is the last one

Peppermint Cloud dessert

Vanilla wafers or Graham crackers crushed
(1-2 pkg of graham crackers, depending on how much you like on the bottom)
chopped walnuts (optional)
2 cups whipping cream
1-1/2 c crushed peppermint (I used 8 crushed candy canes)
4 cups marshmellows

Crush graham crackers or wafers, add walnuts if desired, and spread on bottom of a 9×13 inch pan (you’ll notice this is not a crust made with melted butter, they are loose crumbs, but you could make it a crust if you want)

Or give your 4 year old a lesson in hand mixing

Using electric hand mixer beat whipping cream until it resembles cool whip

Fold marshmellows and crushed peppermint into whipped cream.  Spread cream mixture on top of cracker crumbs.

Chill for 4 hours.
