Homemade Mint Chocolates

We love chocolates here. A few years ago I started experimenting with making our own chocolate chips. Jesse became so enthralled with the idea that he soon took over. This is his recipe for mint chocolates, one of our favorites.

These chocolates are not overly sweet tasting. Since sweetness preference varies from person to person, I highly suggest that you taste your chocolate mixture before pouring it into your molds. You can easily add additional sweetener if you prefer a sweeter tasting chocolate.
