I hope you love this cheesecake as much as I did. Enjoy!
- 1 cup of crushed graham cookies
- 2 tbsp of melted butter
- 2¼ cups of cream cheese
- 1 cup of sugar
- ¾ cup of thickened cream
- ½ tbsp of peppermint extract
- 6 to 12 drops of food coloring
- ½ to 2/3 cup of chocolate chips, plus more for topping
Place the cookies in a Ziploc bag, then crush them until fine crumbs, and transfer them to a large mixing bowl. Add the melted butter, then give them a good stir until incorporated, and transfer them to a springform pan greased with melted butter or nonstick cooking spray. Grab a glass, then use the bottom to press the crust down nicely and evenly, and then place it in the refrigerator for about 15 to 20 minutes to set. In the mixing bowl of a stand mixer, add the cream cheese and sugar, then beat them together until smooth and creamy, then add the thickened cream while beating continuously until incorporated, and then add the peppermint extract while still beating.
Now, add a drop of food coloring at a time making sure to not stop beating until the desired color has reached, then add the chocolate chips, and continue to beat over medium-low speed until incorporated and combined. Scoop and transfer the batter to the chilled crust, then shake the pan to spread the batter evenly and place it in the refrigerator. Allow it to freeze for about 1 to 2 hours until set, then let it soften for about 10 minutes before slicing, and then garnish with more chocolate chips. Serve and enjoy!
