    I made thise recipe and it’s so good. I found Junior Mints at Dollar Tree and came home and made this dessert. It’s amazing how the Junior Mints melt and there is no physical trace of them. It makes such a light and fluffy mousse.

    When I went shopping at the Dollar Tree I also picked up sour cream and made that Cinnamon Sour Cream Fruit Dip you have on this site, so I was thrilled. Yepee!

      You can also find the junior mints with the boxes of theater candy which now they have here at Wal Mart, Walgreens and even our grocery stores. If you can’t find them you could probably replace them with 2-3 York peppermint patties (jr. mints are pretty much the same thing) or in Dining on a Dime there is a recipe for party mints on page 265 which is the same as York Peppermint patties. It would take more work since you have to make up the mints first but if you can’t find the other this would work. The Party mints are really easy to make too.
