  1. Add the cookies to a food processor fitted with the blade attachment and process until they're a fine crumb. Pour this mixture into a medium-sized mixing bowl and add the melted butter. Mix until it's evenly blended.

  2. Evenly divide the cookie crust mixture among 8 (8-ounce) ramekins, and gently press it onto the bottom surface. Set aside on a baking sheet (for easy transportation around the kitchen).

  3. Pour the heavy cream into a large, deep mixing bowl and use an electric mixer to whisk on high speed until medium to stiff peaks form, about 1 minute. (Do not over whip!)

  4. Use a large spatula to fold in the Crème de Menthe and sweetened condensed milk. Fold until everything is evenly blended.
  5. Spoon this mixture into the ramekins, directly over the crust, evenly dividing it among them. Use a small spatula, or the bottom of a spoon, to smooth the surface of each mousse.
  6. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 hour, and up to overnight.
  7. Just before serving, break up each of the After Eight mints into small pieces and garnish each one with them, and top them off with a mint leaf.
