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
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  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.
