Hip tips for making this sweet and fluffy peppermint dip: 

  • Prefer real whipped cream over Cool Whip? Feel free to swap the ingredients, though the dip may not last as long in the fridge or stay as dense… it will still be just as yummy, though!
  • Save on time and make the dip a day ahead of time and chill in the fridge until ready to serve.
  • Give it a festive pink hue with a couple of drops of red food coloring, but feel free to omit that step if desired.

best ever peppermint dip

This is so pretty and yummy!

My kids were especially impressed with this idea, so I’m sure yours will be too! This is a fun one to make with kids (after you prep all the chopping of the candies) because they’ll have fun mixing in the ingredients and choosing the dippers. Enjoy!


Make some Christmas sugar cookies, too!

    Maybe try making sandwich cookies with the dip (as a frosting) between two vanilla wafers…. Gonna try it that way, I think. Thanks, Lina!

    This sounds wonderful and we can’t wait to try it! Ghirardelli peppermint bark squares are our favorite too! We found them in dark chocolate this year and love both versions so much! Thank you Lina!

    Lina – love The recipe, but I cannot find chocolate graham crackers anywhere. I don’t even see them through Amazon, Walmart, or target. Nor any grocery stores. Have they been discontinued?

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh no. I see they are out of stock for me at Walmart but at my local grocer (albertson’s). Maybe a wafer cookie? Or regular graham crackers would still be yummm!
