It’s officially peppermint season, and if you’re a fan of the Cheesecake Factory, that means one thing: the restaurant’s peppermint bark cheesecake has officially returned!
The white chocolate cheesecake is swirled with chunks of chocolate peppermint bark, topped with white chocolate mousse and finished with chopped peppermint. It is available at Cheesecake Factory locations nationwide through the holidays.
If you don’t have a Cheesecake Factory near you, you could try your hand at making one in your own kitchen. Personally, making a cheesecake has always seemed pretty daunting to me, but this recipe for white chocolate peppermint bark cheesecake from Baked by Rachel sounds easy and delicious!
If you’re looking for an even easier recipe, however, these peppermint Oreo truffles are quick to make and require no baking. All you need is Oreos, cream cheese, peppermint extract, candy canes, chocolate chips and optional ingredients like sprinkles.
Even easier than quick truffles? Heading to the store for some Häagen-Dazs peppermint bark ice cream, or Breyers new frozen peppermint hot chocolate ice cream, both of which are on store shelves nationwide.
You can also find peppermint Drumsticks in stores nationwide, which have three different peppermint flavors coated in chocolate, all sitting atop a waffle cone. You’ll find them in peppermint, peppermint fudge and chocolate peppermint.
If peppermint isn’t your favorite seasonal treat, but cheesecakes top your list of must-have desserts, the Cheesecake Factory has other flavors that look just as delicious and work perfectly for the holidays.
From pineapple upside-down cheesecake to cherry Ghiradelli, toasted marshmallow s’more, Cinnabon cinnamon swirl and more, there are plenty of festive flavors on the menu this season. You can even order the Cinnabon cinnamon swirl cheesecake online from Harry & David to have it shipped right to your house if you’re too busy to head to your nearest Cheesecake Factory or don’t have one near you.
If you have a Keurig at home, you can even get your peppermint bark fix in coffee form. The Original Donut Shop makes a light roast peppermint bark coffee pod that you can find in stores like Target nationwide. Because a cup of coffee sounds great with all of these!
