Funny thing about growing mint, the first year you are all “this is going to be great. I’ll dry the leaves and have enough tea for the winter”. The second year you are all “okay, I’ll dry the leaves and have enough tea for a year”. The third year you are all “Really mint? Would you like my whole backyard to take over? Who wants a mint plant??!!”.
And I’m terrible because who can turn down free plants? (hint: not me!). So every year I dry TONS of mint all summer. I do drink tea every day and mint is my daughter’s go-to tea for a stomach ache.
So when I saw the idea of covering mint leaves with chocolate, I HAD to try it. And now you will have to too!
