Chocolate Peppermint Lasagna

Best Christmas yet!  Seeing the excitement on my 2 1/2 year old’s face when he realized Santa came was priceless!  I know that it is only going to get better every year.

But now I want to talk about dessert.  I was hoping to blog about the desserts I have made the last couple of weeks leading up to Christmas, before Christmas came.  That definitely didn’t happen.  So here is one of four that I hope to share with you.

Prior to Thanksgiving, I made this amazing Pumpkin Pie Lasagna!

So when I saw that Beyond Frosting posted a recipe for Chocolate Peppermint Lasagna, I could not wait to make it!  The original recipe has you make it in a 9×13 pan.  But I loved how the pumpkin one looked in the springform pan so I decided to make it in that instead.
