Junior Mints give the refreshing mint taste to this scrumptious smooth-as-silk mousse. It's one of my best desserts because it's a snap to prepare, yet the flavor is beyond compare. -Melissa Tarbox, Allen, Texas

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 28, 2011

Good easy meal. I used cool whip for the whipped topping, and junior mints for the candies. I didn't deviate from the recipe and it turned out great, very tasty. It doesn't last long once it's made, as it gets eaten too fast. As a note: 2 of the larger boxes of junior mints get you the cup you need.
