19 February – Chocolate Mint Day
It’s Chocolate Mint Day! Most people agree that mint and chocolate were made for each other. A burst of refreshing peppermint, spearmint, or crème de menthe combined with the smooth, rich taste of chocolate is a truly unique pairing.
Some of the most famous chocolate mint inventions include: mint chocolate cake, peppermint tart, grasshopper martinis, and mint chocolate chip ice cream.
Did you know that chocolate mint is also a type of herb? It is part of the spearmint family and has edible leaves that taste like chocolate and mint!
To celebrate Chocolate Mint Day, snack on a piece of your favourite mint chocolate or enjoy a scoop of mint chocolate chip ice cream!
