Some foods are just meant to go together, as is the case with chocolate and mint! There is something magical about this combination that creates so many decadent, rich, and creative treats. National Chocolate Mint Day is officially here, and we put together 15 delicious recipes from the Food Monster App so you can celebrate!
1. Sugar-Free Dark Chocolate Mint Pops
Need a break from your same ol’ dessert routine? Try these amazingly creamy dark chocolate mint pops from Gabrielle St. Claire. What sets these pops apart are that they have a rich texture almost like cheesecake, they won’t melt like the traditional pops, pack avocado, coconut, stevia for sugar, a natural green color derived from the avocado, a dark chocolate drizzle shell, and crunchy pistachios!
2. Raw Chocolate Mint Doughnuts

These sweet, decadent chocolate mint doughnuts are an amazing raw dessert experience. Dense and gooey, the base is made from dates, oats, and almonds, with some cacao powder. The mint frosting is made up of coconut cream, mint leaves, maple syrup, and some spirulina for color. The chocolate drizzle is your basic and fabulous raw chocolate. These doughnuts from Emily von Euw aren’t the typical light and fluffy ones you know — and that’s okay.

Rich, crunchy and sweet, these chocolate peppermint crunch cups are full of smooth, peppermint-infused coconut butter! The candy canes are optional, which means that this recipe by Kat Condon could easily be enjoyed year round. However I think the candy canes add the perfect extra “oomph” to these cups.
