I was in the mood for something minty, when I put on my thinking cap and came up with these Frozen Mint Cups. These are really sweet and yummy without being too rich, and they are very easy to make. So if you're kids like chocolate mint, you may want to consider making something like this for St. Patrick's Day (or just make them for yourself, either way). Hope you enjoy!
Recipe for Frozen Mint Cups:
1 8oz whipped topping
2 teaspoons mint extract
a few drops food coloring
36 chocolate mint cookies
Directions: Add mint extract to whipped topping. Mix well to distribute the flavor. Add a few drops of food coloring and stir in. Add more if you like, to get your desired hue. Take about 24 chocolate mint cookies and crush them in a food processor, or place in a ziplok bag and crush with a rolling pin or other kitchen utensil.
Line a muffin tin with cupcake wrappers. (This recipe makes about 12.) Pour the crushed cookies into cupcake liners. You'll want to use almost all the crushed cookies, leaving just enought to garnish the top of your mint cups. Next spoon your whipped topping mixture evenly into each mufin cup. Garnish with remaining crushed cookies, and then stick an uncrushed cookie in the center of each cup. Chill in the freezer until ready to serve.
