Frozen Peppermint Cheesecake

Last night we celebrated my husband's new job by making his favorite dessert. This rich dessert is not for the faint of heart...but it is very tasty! My mother-in-law found this recipe years ago as a recipe submission to a Utah newspaper so I don't have an original source but I'll give all the credit to my mom-in-law since she is a wonderful cook.

Frozen Peppermint Cheesecake

1 1/4 cups oreo crumbs
1/4 cup melted margarine
1/4 cup sugar

1 package (8 oz) cream cheese
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 cup crushed peppermint candy
1/2 cup mini-chocolate chips
a few drops red food coloring (optional)
1 pint whipping cream, whipped

To make crust combine ingredients and press firmly on the bottom and halfway up the sides of a 9 inch spring form pan. To make filling, beat softened cream cheese until fluffy, then gradually beat in condensed milk. Stir in candy, chocolate chips, and food coloring. Fold in whipped cream. Pour into prepared pan and freeze covered, at least 6 hours. Garnish with more candy and chips if desired.
