No-Bake Peppermint Joe Joe’s Cheesecake Jars

The start of my holiday season always begins with watching Home Alone and having something peppermint flavored. Whether it be peppermint hot cocoa, peppermint bark or an actual candy cane.  These are all the first signs of the season of baking and sweet treats.  Instead of just on snacking on Trader Joe’s Candy Cane Joe Joe’s, I decided to make my first sweet treat of the season, No-Bake Peppermint Joe Joe’s Cheesecake Jars.

I thought why not actually make dessert out of the seasonal treats we love.  By making them into a dessert and putting them in jars, I feel it helps to create super easy single servings. Making them ready and available for your holiday guests or your portion control needs.

Here’s a handy step-by-step how to make this sweet peppermint treat.
