Great, do you use this for making teas or in baking?
Pretty pic! I'm curious, is it chocolate in scent or does it get it's name from the tint to the leaves? Might have to Google that:@)
Oooh, Carol...I saw this at the nursery when looking for catnip..of course...and wondered what you could do with it. Hmmm...put it in some sort of drinks? I'll bet you are planning to give us a recipe next, huh? Happy week!...hugs..Debbie
Oh my, I'd love to taste that!
My sister always has some of this in her garden -- smells great!!!
@ niamh, so far just baking, but I bet it would be a very nice tea!@ Lynn, it has the scent of chocolate! A little anyway. It's a nice scent.It comes back so nicely every year, even after a few blizzards.Thanks for the comments! Happy WW :)
I can almost smell that mint!
Chocolate and mint... both my fav... fantastic combination.
Mint is so easy to grow. Yours looks especially healthy. Nice shot!
I grow this as well...when you are back to being wordy, let me know what you use it in... I would love to know.
My son LOVES chocolate mint - he would follow you any where! Thank you for sharing this one :-)
We took a drive to my favorite garden center on Monday and I saw chocolate mint as well as all of the other varieties. I just love to run my hand along the leaves and sniff each scent. Amazing how it smells like chocolate!
I LOVE mint!!! Chocolate mint sounds DIVINE!!Happy WW! thanks for posting. Best,Li@LaLicenciada@HerDeepThoughts
I didn't realize there was an actual plant that combines mint and chocolate! Awesome. :)
you can never go wrong with chocolate mint.
"Chocolate" mint? Now that's interesting! :)
My dad used to grow mint like crazy in the backyard when i was a kid. Loved it in salads :)I never knew that there was a chocolate variety, tho; I saw from one of your commenters that it smells like chocolate...does it taste like chocolate too?
Looks and sounds lovely love minty chocolate too Happy WW! and thanks for stopping by :-)
Sounds as though it would be a delight to have in the herb garden!
@ Sweet and Crumby, I once made a mint whipped cream with berries, I used spearmint but I think next time I would use the chocolate mint. I think that would be nice with strawberries.@ The Book Girl, it's subtle taste of chocolate, not overpowering chocolate flavor but you know it's chocolate is how I would describe it.@ Sukhmandir, it's so nice in the garden, but very invasive. Mine are in big pots!Thanks everyone for the comments :)Have a great week!
Mmm I bet that would be great in tea!
Very cool! I wonder if I can find some around here to plant. I kind of doubt our garden centers have it though.
Makes me want to bake brownies!
We have it in our garden!
I want to go out tonight and buy this plant to put in my garden. Chocolate plus mint? Perfect!
I've never grown chocolate mint! I love all things chocolate.
I need a whiff of this to stop my cravings. I had no idea there was such a plant.
I always have some fresh mint planted in a small pot in my balcony. Are they not only good for salads and things but they are also very good for a cup of lemon and mint tea just before you go to bed. It will comfort your stomach if you have overeaten your favourite food at dinner and will also give you a nice and comfortable sleep for the night. And they will grow fast and multiply themselves like rabbits. :-)
wow, never realised there were so many varieties of mint :).
Carol, Chocolate Mint is my absolute favorite of all mint types. But I'm finding the chocolate mint, in particular, is taking over my garden—FAST!I'll need more recipes for this amazingly-fragrant plant.
@ Yemek Tarifleri, thanks, I will try it in tea, it would be nice!@ Sol, mine is in a big pot on a table in the yard, away from everything. All it can do is grow up. Unlike you and I :) LOL!@ Nammi, there are lots of varieties, some very nice ones, but so invasive.Thanks for all the nice comments, always appreciated. Hope you all have a great weekend.
I love the smell of it!
I'm goin' hunting for this next week! Wish me luck on finding it!! :)
chocolate mint? yummers! i had no idea such a lovely combination existed. i bet it would make a lovely tea.
I didn't know about chocolate mint, now I can't wait to grow it!
