  • 1 1/2 cups (375 mL) chocolaty mint cookie crumbs
  • 3 tablespoons (45 mL) melted margarine
  • 1 envelope unflavoured gelatin
  • 1/4 cup (50 mL) cold water
  • 2 8-ounce (227 gram) packages cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) sugar
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) milk
  • 1/4 cup ( 50 mL) crushed peppermint candy, red or green
  • 1 cup (250 mL) whipping cream, whipped
  • 2 47-gram milk chocolate candy bars, chopped finely

Combine crumbs and margarine and press into the bottom of a 9-inch (23 cm) springform pan. Bake at 350F (180C) for 10 minutes.

Soften gelatin in water, then stir over low heat until dissolved. Combine cream cheese and sugar, mixing on medium speed with an electric mixer until blended. Gradually add gelatin, milk and peppermint candy (reserving a bit of peppermint candy to sprinkle on the top), and mix until blended. Chill until thickened, but not set. Fold in whipped cream and chocolate. Pour over crust and smooth top. Chill until firm. Garnish with additional whipped cream and sprinkle with crushed peppermints if desired.
