One year for Mother's day, my mom received a chocolate mint plant. Other than tea, we did not know what to do with the abundance of mint it produced. So I began to experiment! I have experimented with many different recipes from several sources including all recipes.com, cooks.com and my pastry instructor Chef L. This recipe is a result of combinations and evolution of over a dozen sources. It is rich and fudgey and does not need to be frosted. —CE Duckett
