Without a doubt, I have a sweet tooth.

And, I have very little discipline when it comes to said sweet tooth. As soon as dinner is finished, I REALLY want a sweet something-something to finish my meal.

Did you know that there is a real, physiological reason that we crave something sweet after a meal? The thought is that your body uses energy to digest that meal you just ate and sugar provides a wee boost of energy. So there…

That being said, just a small dessert is clearly better for us than some wonking big dessert.

Walkers Shortbread Mint Royals

And, most importantly, at just 3 ounces, these Mini White Chocolate Mint Mousse cups are huge on flavor! Walkers Shortbread Mint Royals are perfect for the base of the dessert, with their delightful combination of Walkers traditional pure butter shortbread (made with just four simple, natural ingredients: flour, butter, sugar, and salt), fragrant mint and irresistible dark chocolate.  A light and airy Minty White Chocolate Mousse top the mini desserts and pairs perfectly with the dark mint chocolate shortbread.

You can alter these mini mousse desserts easily by adding a little green food color to the mousse or using Creme de Menthe instead of the mint extract. A touch of green would make these Mini White Chocolate Mousse cups all the more festive.

These Mini White Chocolate Mint Mousse are the perfect and refreshing after dinner treat.

In terms of the mini dessert cups, I use my Weck Jars…because I have them.  I use them for condiments, spices, and my wee desserts. Because of their lids, they are very functional. AND, not for nothing,  it was clearly kismet that the Walkers Shortbread Mint Royals cookies fit in the Weck Jars perfectly.

But, there are other options available as well; here and here.  If you do want to look for other dessert cups, bear in mind that the Mint Royals are 1 3/4 inches in diameter

  1. This looks like the perfect dessert,I love that you used a cookie as the “crust”, how cute! I think I need to try this for a holiday dinner.

  2. Oh my goodness Lynn! I will be making these this weekend for sure! Just need to find the Walker’s Shortbread Mint Royals! I didn’t even know they were a thing. I already have everything else on hand!

    1. Hey Maureen,

      Do you have a World Market? I know that they have them there.

      And you will love them! Such a perfect after dinner treat.

      Hugs, Lynn

  3. This sounds delightful! You may wish to check the written recipe for the timing of chocolate melting – several 30 MINUTE runs in the microwave will burn it badly. How about 30 SECOND runs as noted in the video? Now for some dessert making! Thank you!

  4. I’m a chocolate mint lover and want to try out this simple dessert. Do you know if the chocolate mint shortbread, Walkers, can be found in any grocery stores rather than online? Thanks, Barbara

    P.S. Did you mean 30 second, rather than 30 minute increments in microwave for cream cheese and white chocolate chips. I figured it w as a misprint since you said 30 seconds on video.

    1. Hey Barbara, thanks so much for catching that error! I fixed it. And I know you can find them at World Market…do you have one around you?

  5. What time is dessert, I’ll have 4 of them cause they are so cute and small! Love everything about them! And those jars, swooning!
