This Christmas season often means a lot of preparation, parties, concerts (for me and my fellow musicians anyway!), and late nights. I’ve created a stunning and easy dessert you can take to the office or the party with a little caffeine boost to keep you going. Make sure you get one first–they’ll be gone fast!
Also, who doesn’t like a good no-bake cheesecake? And an excuse to crush candy canes with a meat tenderizer? Just me? Okay. *goes back to working out holiday-related frustrations with a meat tenderizer & candy canes.*
Even better? It’s only 7 ingredients: Oreos, butter, Dream Whip, cream cheese, milk, cold brew coffee, and crushed candy canes. Because no one really has time in the Christmas season for complicated recipes.Add some cold brew coffee to your Christmas Baking. #DustyPlainsColdBrewCoffeeClick To Tweet

Start by pulsing the Oreos in a food processor. Put in a bowl and add the melted butter. Press approximately 1 heaping tablespoon of the mixture into the bottom of a lined muffin tin. Set aside.
In your mixer or another bowl, combine powdered dream whip, milk, and Dusty Plains Cold Brew Coffee. Whip until soft peaks form. In another bowl, mix cream cheese with a small amount of the coffee whip until smooth and no lumps remain. Combine the rest of the coffee and whipped cream mixture.
Spoon cream cheese mixture equally among 2 muffin tins. Top with crushed candy canes. Allow to set in the fridge for at least 2 hours, or freeze.
If you choose to freeze the cheesecakes, let them thaw for 10-15 minutes before serving.
