Peppermint Pattie Pots de Crème

November/December 2011

Your rating: None Average: 4.5 (19 votes)

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.

Delicious!

Very easy to make, delicious and everyone loved it. Swirled in a few drops of food coloring to make it pretty. Will add more peppermint next time though. It was tasty with what was added but I was wanting a more icy feeling.

Very easy to make, makes a great but light dessert for after a heavy meal

The best dessert I've ever had!!!

This was AMAZING! I added more peppermint then it called for (on accident) but it was even better. The custard had a really minty, cool flavor. I tripled the chocolate layer on top though - and it was also really good! I will definitely make this again it was soooooo good!

Loved this for a holiday dessert

I made this for dessert after Christmas dinner. I loved it. Not nearly as heavy as a baked good like cake so it was perfect after a big meal. A definite keeper!

Creamy and rich yet light
