This was wonderful. Definitely something to make on a regular basis. I whipped some cream for it but didn't have and 43 vanilla liqueur. I need to get some just for this. Thanks for sharing ~Rita~! I made this for Comfort Cafe January 2010.

This was GREAT, so creamy and minty we all loved it. It will make a great gift for Christmas baskets with a little tag with directions. Thanks
