Recipe from Weightwatchers.com
PointsPlus® Value: 3
  • 1 oz chocolate wafer(s), about 5 cookies
  • ¼ teaspoon mint extract (I used peppermint extract)
  • 1 teaspoon unsweetened cocoa
  • 7 oz fat-free whipped topping, about 1 whole aerosol can
  • ¼ cup(s) fat-free skim milk
  • 3 piece(s) Weight Watchers by Whitman's Mint patties, frozen, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons chocolate syrup
  • 6 tablespoons whipped topping, light or fat-free, vanilla or chocolate
  1. Line six muffin holes with foil muffin liners. (I used paper liners)
  2. In a blender, combine wafers, extract, cocoa, fat-free whipped topping and milk; blend until completely combined. Divide mixture among prepared muffin liners; freeze for at least 2 hours. (Fill each cup half way. Anymore and you won't get 6 desserts, and your points will go up on each one.)
  3. Just before serving, top each with ⅙ of mint patties, 1 teaspoon chocolate syrup and 1 tablespoon whipped topping. Yields 1 dessert per serving.
This easy chocolate dessert can be made in several flavors. For a pure chocolate treat, replace the mint extract with chocolate or vanilla extract and swap the mint patties for an ounce of mini chocolate chips (could affect PointsPlus values). My note : You can also make it a chocolate - almond dessert by using almond extract instead of mint, and Weight Watchers almond patties.
