Chocolate mint

Couldn't resist the smell of a 'chocolate' mint plant when I found it at my local nursery. Has anyone ever used it in cooking and if so would they care to share their ideas?

I have chocolate mint growing in my main herb bed thanks to a gift from a friend. I find it makes the best tasting mint tea there is, but have never used it for cooking. We have made it into mint and lemon honey and for mint vinegar for oxymels.
