When guests are coming over for dinner this summer the last thing you want to do is spend hours in the hot kitchen, right?  So make your guests some chocolate dipped mints that are sure to please their stomachs! 


  • Dark, milk or white chocolate chips (I like Guittard and it’s GMO free)
  • Peppermint Jim’s fresh peppermint or spearmint.
  • Optional: fruits such as sliced bananas or strawberries

In a medium pan on low heat melt the chocolate until liquid. You can either dip the leaves or use a teaspoon to “paint” the chocolate on the leaves. Dip the fruits, using a fork or tongs.

Chill (or freeze) before serving with coffee.
