Candy Cane Mascarpone Dip

This holiday recipe for Candy Cane Mascarpone Dip is a delicious and easy dessert with only a few ingredients - my favorite mascarpone cheese, crushed candy canes, and peppermint extract.

#GetReliefFromtheFeast this season by checking out Walmart's website and their delicious holiday recipe ideas!

Make this Candy Cane Mascarpone Dip for a family party or gathering of friends this season. It would be a great easy dessert for your Thanksgiving meal this week. The best part is this dessert only takes 5 minutes to whip up in a food processor.

The star ingredients of this recipe are mascarpone cheese and crushed mini candy canes. Mascarpone cheese is Italian cream cheese. It's very smooth and slightly sweet, with a tangy flavor at the end. I have really learned to appreciate mascarpone cheese after marrying into a northern Italian family - for example, my sister-in-law often posts delicious Italian-inspired recipes on her food blog.

I love desserts that include dairy like mascarpone cheese, especially around the holidays, but I have been lactose intolerant since I was a baby so I need a little something to help me enjoy my favorite dishes. I always have Lactaid in my cupboard for times like this. I recently stocked up on Lactaid at Walmart.

Make sure to check out Walmart's website for more options to help you enjoy your favorite recipes this season. You can find LACTAID® supplements for dishes you can't control at holiday gatherings this season, LACTAID® dairy products for cooking, IMODIUM® for fast relief from digestive symptoms, and PEPCID® for heartburn. Make sure to stock up on these helpful essentials during your next visit to Walmart.

I served this dip to my family with mini vanilla wafer cookies, but I think it would be delicious with chocolate cookies or graham crackers. 

Peppermint is one of my favorite flavors around the holidays, especially in the form of a candy cane.

How cute is this mini cookie topped with dessert dip?

I suggest crushing an extra mini candy cane to use as a topping on your Candy Cane Mascarpone Dip. It gives this dessert dip a satisfying crunch!
