We're always looking for those showstopping desserts, especially during the holidays. This one is very impressive, but couldn't be easier to make. No one will ever know it's made with a store-bought angel food cake. —James Schend, Taste of Home Deputy Editor

In a bowl, beat cream cheese, sugar, milk and extract until smooth. Fold in whipped cream; set aside.
Place a third of the cake in a 3- or 4-qt. trifle dish or serving bowl. Top with a third of each of the cream cheese mixture, crushed peppermint and peppermint bark. Repeat layers twice; garnish with additional bark. Cover and refrigerate at least 4 hours.
