Tis the Season for Peppermint Bark, & more Peppermint Bark.
Peppermint Bark is what my holiday is surrounded around. It’s what inspired this dish. It’s also my favorite holiday sweet treat and I just can’t get enough of it. This pie was inspired by the yummy layers Williams Sonomas Peppermint Bark. Layers of chocolate, white chocolate and also peppermint. So if you have not tried this I will go ahead and say it is the best out there.
This easy no-bake dessert recipe is the perfect sweet and festive treat for your Holiday indulging. It’s so light but so full of flavor and I know it will be a Holiday Hit.
Chocolate Peppermint Pudding Pie
2 sleeves Oreos-whole
5tbsp melted butter
1 tsp vanilla
1 box instant pudding mix -follow directions and ingredients
2 drops peppermint extract
1 pint heavy whipping cream
1 cup white sugar
1 tbsp vanilla
1 drop peppermint extract
2 candy canes -plastic removed and crushed
In a food processor add the two sleeves of Oreos (whole oreo) and blend until completely crumbled and smooth. Transfer the crumbles into a mixing bowl, and add then the vanilla and melted butter. Using a spoon, mix everything together. Then lay the crust on the bottom of your desired pie pan.
In another mixing bowl, mix the box of instant pudding and milk. Whisk together until thickened. Follow the directions, as it should take a couple minutes. Once thickened, add the 2 drops of peppermint extract. Using a spatula, fold the peppermint extract in. Then add pudding onto the top of the cookie crumble layer.
Using a kitchen aid or hand held mixture, whisk together the heavy cream, sugar, vanilla and drop of peppermint. Then whisk together until soft peaks are formed. Using a spatula fold and spread all pudding layer. I like a rustic look so I end by using a spoon to create little peaks.
Topping/Decorating! Have fun with this part. Do what makes you happy, then create whatever design you want. For example, I started by crushing two candy canes and sprinkled them in a nice layer around the edge. To add a little extra touch I also broke apart the peppermint bark and placed some pieces around. After all, they are what inspired the dish.
Place the pie in the fridge overnight.
Serve when ready and ENJOY!!
Happy Holiday Baking Babes!!
