RecipeNut, this is so delicious. I followed the directions exactly and wouldn't change a thing. Cool and minty. Creamy and luscious. A wonderful dessert for the hot summertime. Thanks :)
I have to admit that I did mine a little bit different, as I made mine sugar-free. I also substituted 1/4 C Creme de Menthe for the mint flavoring and put it into a crust made from sugar-free chocolate sandwich cookies. It was great! Either way you should try this recipe. I will be making this again!
I did only half the whipping cream and powdered sugar, doubled the mint, and used chopped hersheys' kisses. It chilled much more quickly than 3 hours and was delicious!
