Happy Holidays! This Holiday White Chocolate Peppermint Cheesecake Mousse Pie is dreamy, light and creamy and what peppermint dreams are made of and will look lovely on your table.
Our family is divided on peppermint. Half of us love it, half of us don’t.
I’m in the half that doesn’t, if it’s too peppermint-y and sugar-y, I’m out. I’m not into the hard candies, when it comes down to it. My husband doesn’t like peppermint at all either. But, we both liked this.
It’s light and airy. It’s not overwhelming with peppermint candy flavor. It has small bits and pieces of peppermint and this dessert reminds me of those Hershey’s Candy Cane Kisses. Yum!
If you like the taste of those, you know the candy cane bits are subtle, but there’s creamy white chocolate to take over the show, just enough to lure you to keep eating them, because they are that good!

We have real white chocolate melted and cream cheese whipped into the mousse with a small 1/4 teaspoon of peppermint extract. The graham cracker crust is buttery, thick and very delicious. (It tastes great with the filling.) Then a fluffy blanket of whipped cream and sprinkles of peppermint candy cane on top!
How does this sound for your Christmas dessert? Or one of many desserts?
This is best made the night before, so it sets up!
Holiday White Chocolate Peppermint Cheesecake Mousse Pie is magically wonderfully fluffy, creamy and delish and very decorative for your table!
