Mint dessert

Using the microwave will keep the kitchen cool during the summer.

Mint dessertIngredients:

  • 32 large marshmallows
  • 1 cup canned milk
  • 3/4 tsp. mint extract
  • 3 drops green food colouring
  • 2 cups whipped cream or prepared dessert topping
  • 1 3/4 cups crushed sandwich cookies
  • 2 tsp. melted butter


Microwave the marshmallows and milk in the microwave for three minutes, or until everything melts together. Stir the mixture until it is smooth, then allow to cool to room temperature.

Once cooled, add the extract and food colouring, then fold in the whipped cream.

In a small bowl mix the cookie crumbs and melted butter together. Remember to reserve 1/4 cup of the crumbs to garnish the dish.

Place the crumb mixture in the bottom of a 9 inch greased pan, then pour in the marshmallow mixture. Sprinkle the remaining crumbs on top of the dessert.

Put the dessert in the fridge to cool for around four hours, then serve.
