"Made it exactly like the directions and it was delicious if you like mint. A little was okay but didn't eat much. Too minty and too sweet but my 11, 8 and 3 yr old went crazy over it and said mama this is delicious so it's a winner with them. Personally I would have just used regular Oreos lol it's a winner tho!"
