Fun Food Holidays™ February 19th is National Chocolate Mint Day

National Chocolate Mint Day

Chocolate mint is milk chocolate or dark chocolate that is produced with peppermint or creme de menthe flavoring. It's different from mint patties, which have a peppermint flavored cream center with a flat chocolate shell. "Chocolate mint" also is the name for a hybridized herb that tastes like a chocolate-infused mint leaf! Try a CDK recipe for chocolate mint ice cream, or a grasshopper cocktail! It's a sweet and refreshing taste.
