White Chocolate Peppermint Pots de Creme and a KitchenAid® Blender Giveaway

No-Bake White Chocolate Peppermint Pots de Creme

If you’re entertaining this holiday season, the last thing you want is some fussy, complicated dessert. At the same time, you want something that will impress your guests; something that will seem like it took you more time than it really did.

These white chocolate peppermint pots de créme are just the thing, luxurious and creamy, with a white-chocolate custard base and festive notes of peppermint. Add some freshly whipped cream on top and you’re ready to party.

Traditionally, pots de créme are baked in a “bain-marie,” or water bath. I prefer to skip that step, using gelatin to set the custards instead. So technically, they are not true pots de créme (the purists here will have to forgive me), but once you see how easy and delicious they are you’ll forget all about that technicality.

White Chocolate Peppermint Pots de Creme made in a blender

The KitchenAid® 5-Speed Diamond Blender makes this dessert a breeze: quickly melting and liquifying the custard mixture with the white chocolate into a silky smooth cream. Then simply pour into serving vessels and chill until set. No baking, no messy water bath, no fuss.

Visit the KitchenAid® Kitchenthusiast™ blog for the recipe »

And now, since I wouldn’t dare talk about this fabulous blender without giving you a chance to win one…

KitchenAid® Diamond-Series Blender Giveaway

Here’s your chance to own your very own KitchenAid® 5-Speed Diamond Blender in the color of your choice (say it with me, ooooh, aaahhh!) This blender retails for $149, but KitchenAid® has generously offered one to a lucky L&OO reader.

    I would make my Aunty Ann’s Blender German Chocolate Pie. She used to make it for every holiday and my whole family looked forward to it. Sadly, we haven’t the pie since she passed of breast cancer 12 years ago. No one has attempted to duplicate the recipe, but I would with a Kitchen Aid 5-speed diamond blender. What a better way to make her recipe, using the best to make the best. I would chose pink in Aunty Ann’s memory as well, since it is the color of breast cancer awareness.
    For those of you who haven’t had German Chocolate Pie it is a mild chocolate take on pecan pie. I could just imagine the other possibilities with this blender…coconut custard pie, sauces, salsas, soups, shakes, smoothies. I hope I win!!!!!
