Peppermint Torte

I hope everyone had a great Christmas and Santa was great to you!  For those of you who have had to go back to work, I hope you still have a few holiday parties yet to attend.  If you are hosting a party or just want another festive winter recipe, I have a delicious one for you today!  Even though I only eat today’s recipe once or twice a year, it is still one of my favorites.  It is a frozen peppermint torte.  You may say, a frozen dessert during the wintertime?!  But, this winter has been very mild, so it is welcomed.  And if you have a cold winter, it is the perfect amount of refreshment when you are nestled by the hot fire.  Follow the recipe below!
