Frozen Margarita Mousse

Who doesn't love a frozen margarita? This creamy frozen mousse combines ready-to-drink margarita mix and whipped topping (you could use this whipped topping substitute instead). It's easy to put together and the freezer does all the work. Garnish with additional crushed pretzels and kosher salt to enhance the sweet and salty flavor. —Debbie Glasscock, Conway, Arkansas

    Great dessert at the end of a savory meal! Made to recipe and it turned out well. Put it into clean ice cream pails and froze, scooped out into individual cups and garnished. Beautiful!
