Welcome to Day #8 of Chocolate and Mint Theme Week.
Happy St. Patrick's Day to all who celebrate this green-themed holiday. Great timing too. We still have green lawns here in California in winter.

Today's Goddess Dark Chocolate with Mint bar was created by Zokoko (Emu Heights, Australia).

This bar consisted of a creamy, flavorful dark chocolate with "deep cocoa notes" with a hint of "crisp mint" flavor.

This Raw Cacao Mousse from Urban Remedy (Richmond, CA) was a bonus for St. Patrick's Day.  While, it was already featured back in December 2017, it was a gift, and it contained Irish Moss.

Like the company's other desserts, this creamy, organic mousse was free of grain, gluten, dairy and white sugar. It was made with almond milk, date syrup, coconut oil, raw cacao powder, vanilla, Irish Moss, sunflower lecithin and Himalayan salt instead.

After an unsuccessful search for 4-leaf clovers in the yard, we enjoyed bites of this naturally sweet mousse.  (For those desiring more green, Urban Remedy also makes a Grasshopper Pie dessert flavored with cacao and mint, and colored with spinach and actual greens.)
