Ground ivy in chocolate

Something for fun. When I run my workshops, I try to include some recipes for fun. And this time is my ground ivy (glechoma hederacea ) leaves and apple mint shoots in dark chocolate.

it was a success and I feel like sharing with you.

It is very simple. Collect the leaves with a longer stem. If you need to wash them, dry them on a towel. 

Melt the dark chocolate in a bain marie. (I hope it is a correct term. It took me some time to find a translation from German Wasserbad. It is when one melts something in a pot or a bowl immersed in a pot filled with water).

Dip the leaves one by one into the melted chocolate and place them on baking paper until the chocolate is firm. I dipped only the tops of the mint shoots. 

One can also place leaves on a baking paper and cover them with melted chocolate using a brush. 

These chocolate leafs can be used as a decoration or one can simply eat them. A pleasant spicy or minty taste. We just ate them. And loved them!
