Chocolate Mint Strawberries

Today I had a craving for something different with strawberries.  I created a great refreshing snack or desert.  The key to this recipe is either rubbing the chocolate mint leaf with your hands or with a mortar.  This technique is releasing the deep oil of the herb and allowing for the flavor to marinate.  I love incorporating mint into different dishes.  Mint is great for the digestive system.

1.  Place your sliced strawberries in a bowl and toss with honey.
2.  Thinly slice your chocolate mint leaves and rub them with a mortar or your fingers.
