I got this recipe from Group Recipes and it was SO good i HAD to post it here. I take no credit!! Thanks to Jovi_nutt! It tastes like a Thin Mint girl scout cookie or a York peppermint patty. It wasn't nearly as heavy as i thought, either!

NOTE: THIS REVIEW IS FOR ICING ONLY I used the icing in this recipe for a different chocolate mint cake. The icing is amazing. The peppermint and cream cheese complement each other in a way so that neither is too strong. Have already used twice and will use again for sure. Also, this icing tastes better the next day.
