Ordinarily I would expect this question to be answered by "Right click on the menu and the menubar and follow your nose," but I've spent quiet a few minutes and searched, and do not see how to manually add Chromium, which seemed not to populate its own icon in the menu or desk.

How can I create a custom menu item and menubar application launcher under 32 bit Mint Sara Cinnamon?

If you installed it from repositories via apt-get then it should have created a launcher in /usr/share/applications so you could copy that. Launchers are usually .desktop files, which means you can also create one from scratch like so:

[Desktop Entry]

Save it on desktop as chromium.desktop , Icon= part is optional.
