It’s All About The Mint!

<p><a href=""><img class="aligncenter size-medium wp-image-463" alt="MaxBrenner_BerryWaffle_Mint" src="" width="300" height="199" /></a>There are few flavors as versatile as mint. This powerful plant makes its way into our lives on an hourly basis … in our toothpaste, in our morning cup of coffee, in our afternoon mojito … and, of course, in our daily dose of chocolate. <span id="more-462"></span></p> <p>While the origins of mint chocolate are unknown, we’re giving majors kudos to the genius who came up with this dynamic duo. Most theories point to the fact that both chocolate and mint were used for medicinal purposes &#8211; but we’re guessing that some out-of-the-box-thinker thought that the refreshing and crisp mint played nicely with the dark and bitter taste of cocoa, and we couldn’t agree more.</p> <p>Here are five ways to incorporate mint into your everyday chocolate consumption.</p> <p><b>1)      </b><b>Add mint to your hot chocolate</b></p> <p>Crush spearmint or peppermint candies and mix them into your regular hot chocolate. For a holiday classic, try this with white chocolate.</p> <p><b>2)      </b><b>Blend mint into your icing</b></p> <p>Spruce up a can of buttercream icing and mix in mini chocolate chips, peppermint extract, and a few drops of green food coloring.</p> <p><b>3)      </b><b>Sprinkle mint on your waffle</b></p> <p>Instead of dousing your Belgium waffles with syrup, try topping them with a fresh berry salad, melted milk chocolate and a few mint leaves instead.</p> <p><b>4)      </b><b>Bake mint in your cookies</b></p> <p>Add a little zing to your famous chocolate chip cookies by mixing a few crème de menthe baking chips into your traditional recipe.</p> <p><b>5)      </b><b>Mix mint in your milkshake</b></p> <p>When whipping up a traditional chocolate granita (milk chocolate ganache and ice), throw in a handful fresh mint or a few drops of pure peppermint oil.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p>
