    HeatherFeather's Note:

    A thin mint cookie for a base and a yummy green filling..perfect for St Patricks day or anytime. A big hit with kids too. My own creation. You will need 18-24 foil cupcake liners for these.

      These were off somehow. I used top ingredients so I am not sure why they didn't taste better. Made for an office event and they did not get ate and ended up thrown away. Won't make again.

      Turned out perfect and were delicious! Used 1 cup plain yogurt instead of the sour cream.
