Chocolate Mint Parfaits

I love taking recipes that work and giving them a slight twist! Last week I shared my Frozen Mint Cups with you.  And this week I'm taking the same recipe but adding a little brownie to it.  The result is a yummy parfait, suitable for at home snacking or entertaining.  Just imagine serving these up alongside the Frozen Mint Cups for St. Patrick's Day! So fun and festive! Hope you enjoy!

Recipe for Frozen Mint Cups:

1 8oz whipped topping
2 teaspoons mint extract
a few drops food coloring
chocolate mint cookies
1 batch of brownies or a chocolate cake

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.

Place chocolate mint cookies  (about 3 per parfait) in a ziplok bag and crush with a rolling pin or other kitchen utensil. Or use the food processor. Crumble your brownie into a bowl.  Then layer your ingredients into bowls or cups. Top with a cookie crumbs and an additional cookie.

I'm linking up at these parties.
