Chocolate Mint Cooler

“Ok, I know this is decadent, sinful & sure to cause extreme guilt. You know what? I really don't care! After all, it's got yoghurt in it & that's healthy ... right? I'm glad we got that settled. Could I have a refill now? Recipe source is my "CHOCOLATE" cookbook by Christine McFadden & Christine France.”
