Would you believe me if I told you you’re just 20 minutes away from biting into one of these beauties? It’s true.
1 giant Hershey almond chocolate bar
1/2 pkg. (6 oz.) Andes Mint Chips
1/2 cup chopped almonds, optional
1 c. crushed Vanilla Wafers or graham crackers
1 tub (8 oz.) Cool Whip
Melt chocolate bar and mint chips together in the microwave, in 30 second increments, stirring between. Let mixture cool and then fold in Cool Whip. Get a large spoonful of the mousse mixture, shape with your hands to look like a cookie or ball, and roll in crushed vanilla wafers, or sprinkle them on. Drizzle with extra melted mint chips, if desired. Place on waxed paper on a cookie sheet and let set for about 10-15 minutes in the fridge. Place in an air-tight container and store in the refrigerator until ready to eat.
These “cookies” of sorts are my gift to the universe this holiday season. I hope you enjoy this fantastically yummy method of saving on power, and that you’ll implement other energy-conserving strategies in your home as well.
