Chocolate Covered Mint Leaves

Dressed to impress with chocolate

For a refreshing post-meal bite, cleanse your palettes with this simple treat - frozen chocolate-dipped mint leaves. They are great on their own or as a garnish for other desserts like ice cream and cakes. 

Ingredients (makes: 12 leaves)

12 fresh mint leaves
300 g dark chocolate, chopped

Directions

 

1. Place the chocolate in a heavy-bottomed saucepan over low heat and stir until the chocolate is melted.

 

2. Holding the leaf’s stem with your fingers, dip the mint leaves into the chocolate and place on a baking sheet covered with parchment-paper. 

 

3. Freeze the uncovered leaves for at least 20 minutes, until hardened (or for around [5] minutes in a blast chiller).

 

4. Gently remove them from the parchment paper, and serve immediately. Chocolate covered mint leaves are perfectly complimented by raspberry sherbet.
