  1. This peppermint dip was really good!

    1. Mary, so happy you enjoyed this peppermint dip recipe!! My neighbor said her kids ate the whole bowl after we made it.

  2. Hi! Can I refrigerate it overnight or should I leave it out if I prep it the night before?

    1. It has cream cheese so you do not want to leave it out on the counter at all. It should be fine to make overnight and then give it a good mix before serving. My only concern is to make the candy canes really fine because putting those in the fridge in too big of chunks may prove to be a hard bite on your teeth!

    What type of chocolate crackers do you use? Graham?

    1. Yes, we like to use chocolate graham crackers! But you could use any sweet cracker or cookie really.
