Over the last few months we have seen plenty of PUMPKIN recipes, but starting in November I switch gears and like to share a TON of PEPPERMINT recipes. You can’t have too much peppermint around the holidays, right?!

A few weeks ago my mom and sisters came over so we could experiment and make a series of holiday recipes and one of the recipes we tried were these Peppermint Cheesecake Bars. They were so delicious and were a hit with the entire family. My kids and hubby especially love cheesecake so these didn’t last long here at the house.
