After Dinner Chocolate Mints
Fresh mint is dipped into dark chocolate, which results in super fresh flavours and a beautiful presentation, for an after dinner chocolate mint treat.
These are the simplest, yet possibly the yummiest thing to make for after dinner in lieu of the far more sugary commercial after dinner mint options.
Although I love to eat these alone they can be eaten as a garnish on a larger dessert, or even as part of a s’more.
1 bunch mint
100g dark chocolate
Remove the leaves off the mint stems. Wash and thoroughly pat dry. If there is any moisture, the chocolate won’t stick.
Using a microwave or double boiler, melt the chocolate until smooth and runny.
Dip each leaf, covering both sides of half a leaf. This is easiest done by dragging it through the chocolate in one direction, then flipping and dragging back the other way.
Place on baking paper to set. You can place it in a cooler for a short time to speed up the setting process.
