My son, Cameron, just had to have his blood drawn twice in the past week. Since he is only two, I was nervous how it would go and a bit sad to take him. Thankfully, my sister was able to come with me when he had it done the first time. We were both bracing ourselves for a lot of crying. But, when we got there, he proudly climbed up on the chair, held out his arm and didn’t flinch or cry when they poked him.

Talk about a proud mom moment. I thought it might be just a fluke, and was worried the second time we went that he would know what was going to happen and cry and not hold still. He was still a champ the second time, although he did get a little squirmy at how long it took. I think I’ve told everyone I know that story and I’m still so proud of him that I feel the need to share the story with the entire internet.

I’m not sure why he was so brave, but I’m proud of him. Now to work on teaching him not to cry when his sister barely bumps him.

I’m a mint chocolate lover and I’m so happy that the mint chocolate recipes on my blog are some of my most popular on my site.

So knowing that you all love mint chocolate as much as I do, I wanted to give you all a bite sized mint chocolate chip recipe you can keep in your freezer and pull out whenever you have a craving.

    What a little champ Cameron is you should be so proud of him, I remember my sons first lot of bloods taken at the same age I was extremely proud of Kieran too, and your truffles are so yummy

  3. Pam S says

    I love chocolate and mint together and can’t wait to try these, but I have a couple of questions. Did you use green food coloring in the filling? And for the mint extract or flavoring, would peppermint extract give the same result?

    • Mallory says

      yes, I used green food coloring. you can leave it out if you want. And there are some variations in mint in peppermint extract. but if you like the flavor of peppermint, it will be fine.

    I love chocolate & mint and these look devine and yet easy to make. Now my
    second love is chocolate & orange. So after make some mint truffles, I will
    switch the mint for orange extract and orange zest. OMG…I might have to hog them
    all to myself!!!
