Peppermint Pattie Pots de Crème

We love York peppermint patties and the flavor of these festive pots de crème is a dead ringer for the candy. Unlike traditional über-rich custard recipes, this custard uses low-fat milk, only 3 egg yolks and 1/2 cup of half-and-half for its creamy richness. Just 1/2 teaspoon of peppermint extract in the custard gives plenty of minty flavor, but if you want that icy mountain-breeze sensation, add a whole teaspoon instead.

One of my favorite desserts!

I love peppermint patties and this Peppermint Pattie Pot de Creme recipe is awesome! It's so good, I'll likely make it for Christmas this year. Next time, I'll be sure to make it earlier in the day, so if has plenty of time to cool and gel properly. I might also add some more peppermint extract, as the Dutch chocolate I used over-powdered the mint flavor a bit. Try this! They're so, so delish!

Easy to make, light yet rich
