Yum! We love chocolate and mint, and this was no exception! Instead of in individual cups, I made a 9 inch pan of it. The filling is light and not too heavy. I used reduced fat Oreos and light whipped topping. Thanks, Sharon!!

Sharon, wonderful is the only way to describe these, they are wonderful. I can see these being constantly in my freezer as chocolate and peppermint are my 2 all time favorite flavors. I only made 1/2 the recipe only because the kids had devored most of the oreos, but after tasting these I immediately went and got oreos and made 12 more. They are lighter than icecream and really more refreshing and for me the size is perfect for a small snack. Just a word to the wise here, those foil cups when frozen are dangerous. I thought I didnt want to miss a drop and like a fool went to lick the inside of the foil. dumb move cause it cut my tongue and inside lip! But it didnt stop me from enjoying these. If I never review another recipe I can die a happy woman with these in my freezer....Thanks Sharon, this has got to be on my all time favorites list.
