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.


  • ½ cup dark chocolate (bars work fine)

  • Fresh mint leaves


  1. 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.
