Is there anything better than the taste of mint and chocolate together? This recipe came from Patty, of the Celestial Café.

6 Peppermint tea bags
1 cup water
3 oz. unsweetened chocolate
1/2 cup salted butter
2 cups sugar
2 eggs, separated
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 cup plain yogurt
2 cups flour
1 tsp. baking powder

Boil water in a small saucepan and add Peppermint tea bags. Remove from heat and let steep for 5 minutes. Remove tea bags, squeezing excess liquid into the pan. Return the tea to a boil. Place the chocolate and butter in a large bowl. Pour Peppermint tea over the top. Whisk until melted. Stir in sugar and egg yolks. In a separate bowl, mix baking soda and yogurt. Add to the chocolate and butter batter, and mix well. Sift flour and baking powder into the batter, and mix well. In a separate bowl, whip egg whites until stiff, then fold them into the batter. Pour into 2 greased and floured 8″ round pans or one 9″ X 13″ pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 40-50 minutes. Remove and sprinkle with powdered sugar.

Serves 8 or more.
