National Chocolate Mint Day

National Chocolate Mint Day celebrates foods and treats made with chocolate mint, which is flavored chocolate that is also known as mint chocolate. Chocolate mint can be found in ice cream, candy, mints, cookies, hot chocolate, and various desserts. A variety of mint flavors may be used to make chocolate mint, such as peppermint or spearmint. There is even a hybrid mint plant called chocolate mint that can be used. The use of crème de menthe flavoring is also common. The mint is added to milk chocolate, dark chocolate, or even white chocolate. Chocolate mint is different from mint patties, which have a peppermint cream center and a chocolate shell. An early type of chocolate mint was Frango mints, first made in 1918, and another long-running popular brand is Andes Chocolate Mints. It is unknown who created today's holiday, but it is recognized by the National Confectioners Association.
