National Chocolate Mint Day: Why Celebrate with Dessert?

It’s time to break out the chocolate and mint – National Chocolate Mint Day is here! This special day happens every year on February 19th and it’s the perfect occasion to try making something new. We know that chocolate and mint together are a match made in heaven, so why not celebrate by baking something delicious? Let’s look at some of the most decadent desserts you can make with chocolate and mint.

Chocolate Peppermint Brownies

We can’t talk about chocolate and mint desserts without mentioning brownies! These peppermint brownies combine two kinds of chocolate for a truly indulgent treat. Start by melting dark cocoa powder and butter in a saucepan over low heat. Combine this mixture with eggs, sugar, flour, peppermint extract, crushed candy canes, and white chocolate chips before transferring it to a greased pan. Bake for 25 minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit, then let cool before serving.

Mint Chocolate Chip Cake

If you’re looking for a showstopper dessert to impress your friends or family, look no further than this amazing cake! Begin by mixing together all purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, granulated sugar, vegetable oil, vanilla extract and sour cream in one bowl until the mixture is combined. In another bowl beat four egg whites until stiff peaks form before folding them into the batter along with two drops of green food coloring and one tablespoon of peppermint extract. Once your cake layers are cooled you can fill them with a simple buttercream frosting mixed with crushed peppermints or candy canes before decorating the top of your finished cake with mini Andes chocolates or more crushed candies.

Mint Chip Ice Cream Pie

This dessert will bring back memories of childhood summers spent eating ice cream cones! Start by combining Oreo cookie crumbs with melted butter before pressing them into a springform pan as your crust. Once your crust is made spread softened mint chip ice cream over top then freeze until solid (about 3 hours). Once ready to serve let sit at room temperature for 15-20 minutes before topping it off with whipped cream and more Oreos or Andes chocolates if desired! Enjoy!
