peppermint Pot de creme

Happy Holidays! I will start the holiday baking extravaganza with this delicious EASY thick decadent chocolate dessert with a wonderful hint of Peppermint Twist. This dessert will not blow your healthy eating to bits and is perfect for small cozy holiday dinners. This recipe gives you an option to use organic peppermint candy or if you limit sugar in your diet use peppermint extract. OR a real cheat treat use Peppermint Schnapps.

Makes 4 – 1/2 cup servings

7oz dark chocolate 70% or higher

1 – 14oz can full fat coconut milk (or lite coconut milk for creamier texture)

2 egg yolks

1 tbsp vanilla extract

3 peppermint candy canes chopped

OR/OR both

1/2 tsp peppermint extract (to taste)

Start by combining the coconut milk, egg yolk, 2 peppermint candy Chopped OR peppermint extract. This dessert has a hint of peppermint flavor topped with peppermint. If you like a punch of peppermint use more extract. Bring the mixture to a rolling boil then reduce heat and simmer and whisking often. Cook until the mixture thickens and sticks to the back of a metal spoon.

Put the chocolate and vanilla in a bowl. Pour the hot milk mixture through a fine mesh sieve over the chocolate and stir until blended.

Pour into decorative dishes for 1/2 cup individual servings. Refrigerate 4-6 hours. Sprinkle your remaining chopped peppermint candy.

Happy Baking!
