This recipe has been long awaited because mint and chocolate is my dream team. Creating this combo and ensuring that the mint was just perfect was super important, because for me there is no other combination as delicious as these two. So I encourage you to taste your n'ice cream and be sure the mint-iness is perfection for you as well. Freezing does not reduce the taste of the mint.
