That's basically it. A chocolate bar with mint leaves inside.

       I don't consider this a recipe at all. It's conceptual and I like it. +   

       One detail though: would the mint leaves be intact or minced up?
bristolz, May 30 2003
  

       Agreed it's not a recipe. But mint chocolate is not exactly uncommon, and I completely fail to see the attraction of including actual leaves. Anyway, this would appear to be Baked (see link).
DrCurry, May 30 2003
  

       Could you post this idea on a cooking site and have it accepted as a recipe? I interpret a recipe as a series of procedural instructions for how to make something.   

       Otherwise, virtually any combination of components could be deemed a recipe.   

       Add one ingredient, explosives (that exists) to another, resumes (that exist), for instance.

       This could be posted to a recipe site, particularly one focused on candy making. The idea is pretty vague... it says 'chocolate bar' and the tendency is to presume a mass produced commodity. That might be the intent, but it's not clear.   

       I have always thought 'recipe' as it pertains to the bakery meant specifically food combinations. If there's doubt about that perhaps we should ask for clarification.   

       In any case, this would be pretty disgusting.   

       bris, I don't think you really want us to go through the entire bakery haggling over every potential recipe idea to make this point, do you?

       [blissmiss] your starting to sound like [waugs]....Hey [waugs] ;)

       Precedence.
bristolz, May 30 2003
  

       My question remains... what does "straight recipes" mean with regards to how it applies to the mfd issue at the bakery? Perhaps jutta could chime in - presuming she made the rule, she can illuminate us as to her intent.   

       Precedence is another issue here. There are ideas, such as Tails for All, that predate the mfd rules against GM/magic, and as such continue to exist.

       Aw fuck this. I'm outta' here.
bristolz, May 30 2003
  

       Apparently it's a recipe for disaster. She is beautiful though, isn't she?

       How about dipping an entire living mint plant in chocolate, and selling it in the pot? Possible name: chocopottomint.
Cedar Park, May 31 2003
  

       or pot-o'-chocomint? You've made this better yet, [CP]
Tiger Lily, May 31 2003
  

       And other kinds of leaves.....baked.
git, May 31 2003
  

       Mixing plant bits with chocolate isn't anything new.   

       Just ask your average hippy.

       So, 'Happy Brownies' was not just a clever name...
Cedar Park, May 31 2003
  

       This is NOT a recipe. Recipes begin with raw ingredients. This is an idea for a product, just as "Analog Speedometer". Yes, we have words and ink and speedometers. "Analog Speedometer" is an (albeit stupid) idea for putting them together.   

       (Agreed with [bliss]: great, now I can't even eat a chocolate bar w/o worrying that I'll get green things in my teeth <sheesh>)

       Every Jewish guy (12+) I've asked 'fessed up to eating pork - and liking it.

       Maybe the chocolate bar could have a lightly flavored mint jelly inside w/ a couple of mint leaves floating around inside it.
igirl, Jun 02 2003
  

       i endorse the mint jelly plan.

       How about chocolate covered mint leaves in an alcoholic beverage?
No no, that's terrible.
Well then, how about a chocolate covered mouse in a drink?
Ooooh...getting better.
Ok, let’s see, how about a frozen mouse a drink?
Hummmm, <tasting> now that’s an idea!

       //chocopottomint//   

       As the mint grows through time extending its reach through a network of runners, it would shed it's chocolate outer whilst flowering a handsome purple mint display, leaving little crunchy mint choc' pieces to be picked up and nibbled. (Unless it's particularly warm, then you'd have a minty chocolate dip.)
