Tis the peppermint season! This is one of my favorite holiday flavors – it’s crisp, fresh and seems to always put a seasonal touch on any dessert dish. This Double-Deck Pot de Creme is no exception.
I love this recipe for its ease of preparation, but most of all—it’s a no-bake recipe that can be made ahead of time. Which of course makes it holiday-perfect when your oven is busy doing savory, your head is crazy with timing each dish, and one hand is busy balancing a cocktail and the other is busy refilling appetizers, all while carrying on multiple conversations. Okay, so maybe not everyone’s holiday soirees are as I described above, but if you are remotely close to that, then you will love this no-fuss recipe even more.
So keep this recipe classic as you see here or melt a 1/4 cup of crushed peppermint candy into the dark chocolate and finish with a sprinkle of it on top for a holiday touch.
*Recommend peppermint candy: Hershey’s Candy Cane Kisses, Andes Peppermint Crunch, Ghiradelli Peppermint Bark.
