After-Dinner Mint

Martha Stewart Living, August 2008

For a refreshing postmeal bite, try frozen chocolate-dipped mint leaves -- on their own or as a garnish for ice cream or chocolate cake. Melt 1/2 cup dark chocolate (bars work fine), and dip in fresh 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.

    My dinner party guests absolutely loved these. I used several squares of dark chocolate from my trip to Belgium, and fresh mint leaves from my garden. They are a phenomenal way to end the evening.

    Just like After Eights, yet more natural and has probably less calories too! :)

    I have a fresh mint plant on my desk. I cannot wait to chocolate dip the leaves.
