Chocolate Mint Tops
Choose 50, 100, or 150 tops.
Chocolate mint is a variety of peppermint with green leaves that are occasionally blackish/purplish and green or purple stems. Its flavor and aroma are similar to plain peppermint, though less powerful with a hint of something evoking chocolate.
Herb tops are clusters of herb leaves on the stem rather than herb sprigs. The large impressive leaves on an herb top make beautiful garnishes for desserts, entrees, and cocktails and add vibrant color and flavor to dishes.
Store chocolate mint tops in your refrigerator in their plastic clamshell.
Roughly 7 to 10 days.
RECIPES & TIPS
When using chocolate mint, be aware that the leaves bruise easily, especially when cut, with their color darkening to almost black.
Chocolate mint leaves can be used as a garnish or ingredient similarly to peppermint in desserts, entrees, cocktails and other beverages. Chocolate mint works particularly well infused into cream for use in chocolates and desserts.
