Peppermint Christmas Dessert

Feeling festive, I made this easy dessert for Christmas Eve and Christmas Dinner. This dessert can be made ahead and frozen.

The recipe is on the box of Nabisco Famous Chocolate Wafers. I don't stand them sideways; I just stand them upright. Check out this article in The Washington Post!

I use Cool Whip (the heavy creme is too rich) with a few drops of red food coloring and add 1 tsp. of peppermint extract added to the other ingredients.

The crushed candies are Williams-Sonoma Peppermint Chocolate Filled Snaps.We have a store at Cape Cod which sells them at Christmastime and my husband picks them up for me while he is working as it saves on the shipping cost.
