Peppermint Pie

This pie is a little different but it is good! I got the recipe off the Food Network from Paula is a great Christmas treat!

  • 1 envelope plain gelatin

  • 1/4 cup cold water

  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream

  • 1 1/2 cups heavy cream, whipped

  • 8 oz peppermint candies, softish type (*Bob's brand works best*)

  • 1 chocolate cookie crust

  • crushed peppermint, for garnish

Soften gelatin in water and set aside. Put 1/2 cup heavy cream in a small saucepan with candies and cook over low heat until candy melts. Add gelatin to mixture and mix well. Let cool and fold in whipped cream. Pour into crust, sprinkle with crushed peppermint candies and chill thoroughly.

*Bob's brand are sometimes harder to find, I've been able to find them at Walmart on the candy isle with the other bags of candy.
