For a different, organic twist on the chocolate mint, try the Honey Pattie from Heavenly Organics (Fairfield, Iowa). Gluten and dairy free, these chocolates were made with only three ingredients: raw, organic honey; organic unsweetened chocolate; and peppermint oil.
The honey filling in these individually wrapped patties made for a more liquid center, so take care where you buy these, and don't squish these before opening -- else (unfortunate result shown at right), you'll be licking the inside of the wrapper, Winnie the Pooh style, to enjoy that last bit of honey. Still wonderful honey, just a little messy.
