A cool cocktail translated into a refreshingly zesty dessert. This silken treat has mojito flavors but no alcohol, so it's really more mocktail than cocktail.

Let's Make It
Line 9-inch round pan with large sheet of plastic wrap, with ends of wrap extending over side. Beat Neufchatel and 1/4 cup sugar with mixer until blended. Add dry gelatin mix, lime zest and juice; mix well.
Whisk in COOL WHIP and mint; pour into prepared pan. Combine pretzel crumbs, butter and remaining sugar; sprinkle over dessert. Use ends of plastic wrap to gently press crumb mixture into top of dessert.
Freeze 3 hours or until firm. Invert dessert onto plate; remove pan and plastic wrap. Let dessert stand at room temperature 15 min. to soften slightly before cutting to serve.
Sweets can be part of a balanced diet but remember to keep tabs on portions.
Stir 1/2 tsp. rum extract into COOL WHIP mixture before pouring into prepared pan as directed.
If you can't get enough juice from the limes, add enough bottled lime juice to get the desired measure of juice needed to prepare the recipe.
