Frozen Chocolate-Mint Leaves
For a refreshing post-meal bite, try this twist on after-dinner mints -- the leaves are delicious on their own or as a garnish for ice cream or chocolate cake.

- 1/2 cup dark chocolate (bars work fine)
- Fresh mint leaves
Melt chocolate, and dip in mint leaves, holding on to the stem side with your fingers or kitchen tweezers. Place on a parchment-covered baking sheet, and freeze, uncovered, until hardened, about 20 minutes (or up to 5 hours). Gently remove from parchment, and serve immediately.
