So some holidays are a little difficult to find something to write about. For me, this is one of those days. We are celebrating chocolate, a good thing, and mint, a good thing as well, and the mixture of them combines. The mint does make chocolate more refreshing, kind of cleansing the palate while eating something that covers up the taste of nearly everything else.
So, anything that can include, be made of, or calls for chocolate can have mint added to it. Ice creams comes to mind first, then hot chocolate. Andes Mints are all about the mint and chocolate of course.
Thus, adding mint to chocolate seems to be a natural progression or extension of something most of us think is pretty good anyway. Don;t question it, try to figure it out or even think too much on the subject… just accept it.
How to celebrate – Add some mint to your chocolate. Add some chocolate to your mint. Why isn’t peppermint made out of pepper?
