You’ll love this rich chocolatey dessert with a hint of coffee and peppermint, while the whipped cream and peppermint bits add the perfect light touch




  1. Put the chocolate chips in a blender. Add the eggs, peppermint extract, and salt. Pulse a few times until the chocolate chips are partially chopped.
  2. Turn on the blender and carefully open the little opening and slowly pour the very hot (it needs to be nearly boiling) coffee into the chocolate in a slow steady stream. If you can’t do that safely, then turn the blender off, pour the coffee in slowly, put the lid back on, and blend until it’s smooth.
  3. Pour the mixture into mason jars or cups and refrigerate for 2-3 hours or until firm.
  4. Whip the whipped cream and sugar and add to the top of your peppermint pots de creme!


Note: In order to melt the chocolate and cook the eggs properly, you need really hot coffee for this recipe. (Apparently my old coffee maker wasn’t quite up to the task because it didn’t melt the chocolate fully the first batch I made. The second time, I heated the coffee in the microwave and the results were much better.)
