Candy Cane Dessert Recipe
All you will need for this peppermint dip is a jar of marshmallow fluff, cream cheese, and candy canes. First, put the fluff and cream cheese into the mixer bowl of a stand mixer, and let the mixer do the work. When the ingredients are mixed together, add in crushed candy canes and mix the fluff some more. Once the crushed candy canes are mixed in, the dip is all set! If you want to add even more peppermint flavor, you can mix in peppermint extract to really up your mint game!
