Today was Day #6 of Chocolate and Mint Theme Week.
The team at Mission Hill Creamery (Santa Cruz, CA) crafts their ice cream from organic ingredients from companies like Straus Family Creamery, an organic dairy in California. (Wise move; I've never met a dessert made with Straus Creamery products that I didn't like.)
I enjoyed a dish of the company's Mint Chocolate Confetti Ice Cream today, topped with a mint leaf plucked from a bush in my yard. (I preferred the organic peppermint flavoring in this Mission Hill ice cream to the spearmint from my garden.)
The creamy mint ice cream was flecked with chocolate shreds that were just the right consistency -- allowing tiny bursts of chocolate flavor to break through now and then. These shreds were so much better than the little frostbitten and bland, dark waxy bits that you'd find in some mint chocolate chip frozen desserts.
