Chocolate Mint Leaves

In preparation for some chocolate mint cupcakes I'll be making tomorrow, I thought I'd attempt the tricky business of creating my chocolate mint leaves now. (to go on the top for decoration).
It's not too bad though saying that, you just melt your chocolate, paint, leave to dry and peel... in theory. No doubt tomorrow I'll be changing my recipe due to leaf peeling mishaps...
I'm sat looking at them now thinking 'how the hell am I going to peel set chocolate off these flimsy leaves???' - but if it's good enough for Martha Stewart, it's good enough for me.
I should probably call this post 'first try' maybe though?

Painting my mint leaves.

Letting them dry...
