I have finally used some of my chocolate Mint plant. The other day pinched off a handful of fresh leaves
diced them small and mixed into cookie batter.
The mint-chocolate-chip cookies came out a little crisper than I like, but tasted great! A very distinct minty flavor. Wonderful crumbled up into a dish of vanilla ice cream.... Definitely something I'm going to repeat. The kids love them, too.
It's not really the holiday season unless you're baking goodies, right?
