Frozen Peppermint Cheesecake

I found this recipe on Pinterest and decided to make it for New Year's Eve in the event that someone didn't like bananas.
It was a hit...and super easy!

1 package Oreos, crushed into small crumbs
1/4C sugar
1/4C butter, melted
1 8oz package cream cheese, room temperature
1 14oz can sweetened condensed milk
2 tsp peppermint extract
2C heavy cream, whipped
red food coloring
1 candy cane, crushed

  1. Combine cookie crumbs and sugar in a medium bowl.
  2. Add butter and mix well.
  3. Press crumb mixture firmly onto bottom and partway up the sides of a 9" springform pan.
  4. Refrigerate pan while making the cheesecake.
  5. Beat cream cheese until fluffy in a large bowl.
  6. Gradually add the sweetened condensed milk until smooth.
  7. Stir in peppermint extract and food coloring (more food coloring for a redder cake, or less for a more pink hue).
  8. Fold in whipped cream.
  9. Pour filling into pan.
  10. Sprinkle candy cane on top of cheesecake.
  11. Cover and freeze for 6 hours, or until firm.
  12. Enjoy!
