This is the perfect dessert for the chocolate and mint lover. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed this light minty dessert. I used Famous Chocolate Wafer cookie crumbs for crust and Brachs pastel dessert mints for the flavoring in the whipped cream. I only made 1/3 the recipe and froze in a 8.5 X 5.5 casserole dish. This made 6 average size servings.
