Now that we are past Thanksgiving, I am gearing up for December holidays! It’s such a busy month for us, between my son’s birthday, Christmas parties, taking a vacation, and then of course, Christmas, that I need to get a solid plan on things before it’s the last minute! When I heard M&M’s® had a new flavor, M&M’s® White Peppermint, I knew it would be perfect for holiday baking. I have been crazy about making cheesecakes lately, so I really wanted to try my hand at a Chocolate Peppermint Cheesecake with Chocolate Ganache, and I am so glad I did, because it came out awesome!
