Christmas Treat Board and Peppermint Bark Cheesecake Dip Recipe

Christmas Treat Board and Peppermint Bark Cheesecake Dip Recipe

I love a good holiday themed treat board, they’re so much fun to put together! I shared this on Instagram a few days ago and promised the recipe to the Peppermint Bark Cheesecake Dip so I am happy to finally get this post put together this morning. Both boys are content at the moment so I am hustling to get this done before I get interrupted!

I went with a semi-homemade approach to my board. I made the Cheesecake dip, Gingersnap cookies and dipped the pretzels in chocolate topped with sprinkles. The rest is store bought from Target. I initially wanted to add mini Santa sugar cookies and mini gingerbread cookies but I was not able to get those done last weekend so I moved on without them. I am hoping to do a lot of baking this weekend so when I get those done I will share the final product with you 🙂

PEPPERMINT BARK CHEESECAKE DIP

Ingredients:
8 oz cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup marshmallow fluff
1/2 cup cool whip
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 cup chopped Ghirardelli peppermint bark squares
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips

Directions:
1. In your stand mixer, I used the paddle attachment, beat your cream cheese until smooth. Add marshmallow fluff and cool whip and mix well.

2. Slowly add the powdered sugar and once combined mix well.

3. Fold in chopped peppermint bark and mini chocolate chips.

4. Transfer to your serving bowl and chill in the refrigerator for a couple hours before serving. Top with additional chopped peppermint bark or mini chocolate chips if you’d like. My favorite things to dip in this are graham crackers (chocolate ones are the best but I couldn’t find them anywhere!) or pretzels.

This is such an easy recipe and I’d love to know what you think if you end up making it. Also, if you’re wondering whether I made it through this blog post without the kids needing me the answer is absolutely NOT, haha. I hope this post brings you some holiday treat board inspiration just in time for the season!

Christmas Decor on Sale | 2021

I love all these items from McGee and Co and had all of them in my cart at one point but ended up ordering the tree topper, wooden pedestal and the bells.

I shared these Pottery Barn finds during their sale and many are still on sale! I ordered that stocking for Cullen to match our other ones and this rug here. I have that throw blanket in the gray color from a few years ago and it’s suuuuper warm and cozy!

Finally I am sharing these favorite finds from Nordstrom. I haven’t placed an order yet for any of this stuff but I probably will within the next couple when I know what I might still be needing for decor. Hope you’re having a great weekend!

Mantle and Dining Room Decorated for Christmas

I just love all the added greenery this time of year, it’s so pretty and one of my favorites elements of Christmas decor. As I am looking at these photos I realize I still need to order Cullen’s personalized stocking, I better get on that right away!

I have limited time to work on blog posts and most of that being before the kids wake up or late at night before going to bed. I love the mornings when I can sit in peace, enjoy my coffee and blog away. That’s how this morning started. Cullen woke up (for the 3rd time) at 5:30ish so I fed him and decided to get up after he went back to sleep so I could do this for myself because I really enjoy it – just wish I had more time to put into it. Usually I start blog posts and it’s days later until I am able to post them, but that’s ok! Anyway, thank you for being here and supporting me on this blogging journey that is most certainly one of my favorite hobbies. Also, holy buckets, I can’t believe it’s already Thanksgiving tomorrow!!! Hope you have a wonderful day, hopefully celebrating with your loved ones.
