Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Refrigerate: 4 hours
Makes 24 servings.

INGREDIENTS

    • 1½ cups chocolate wafer cookie crumbs (about 30 cookies)
    • 1/3 cup butter, melted
    • 3 packages (8 ounces each) cream cheese, softened

    • 1 teaspoon McCormick Pure Peppermint Extract
    • 1/2 teaspoon McCormick Green Food Color
    • 3 eggs
