Chocolate Mint Cups

Chocolate Mint Cups

This creamy cup of goodness is the perfect balance of chocolate mintiness.   Yes, you could go to your local confectionery store and buy something similar…but loaded with tons of sugar and a costly price tag.  This treat only takes 10 minutes to whip together, and its nutritional profile can’t be beat.  Besides, part of the deliciousness of this treat is the heart-warming satisfaction of making it yourself!
