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.

  67. I’d make something for my PICKY 4 year old and rest easy knowing that she wasn’t eating another stinkin’ hot dog for lunch. I often try to make her smoothies with spinach or kale but my blender is LAME and doesn’t get the greens smooth enough for her. (Sigh. That girl).
    This would be such a blessing! It would put this momma’s mind at ease knowing that my girl was getting some good nutrients.

    Kale smoothie, comin’ up!

  76. Hmmm….unconventional? I don’t know whether this counts, but I had a friend make toasted marshmallow malts recently, and I haven’t been able to stop thinking of them since! 

  77. I can’t think of anything unconventional, but I do need a new blender. I ruined my old blender form 1980 trying to make superfine sugar.

  79. I have already subscribed to the list.

  80. Followed both on Pinterest and looking forward to that too!

  83. Pomegranate (the it fruit for winter) + basil with a splash of dark chocolate flavored almond milk

  89. Oh, so many nut butters!  And hummus.  And I hear that coconut milk can be blended and whipped into a kind of frosting…

  90. First use for a beautiful new blender would be experimenting with alternative pestos for the basil-less season!! Different herbs? Peas? Other greens? I have some recipes to start with, but sadly no blender or food processor . . . the neighbors would be thrilled if I got my own instead of borrowing theirs!

  91. I am subscribed for your e-mail at, I followed you and Kitchen Aid and tweeted with my @ispit3fry handle, and I’m following you both on Pinterest with my /mommasangelbaby username!  This looks so yummy.  I can’t wait to get my new Kitchen Aid and try it!  HUGS!

  96. Egg nog made with unsweetend vanilla coconut milk.  Yummy, but low-cal.

  97. I followed you and KitchenAid on Pinterest ~ my user name is dh127. I checked out your recipe on their site and definitely want to try it soon! A much easier way than baking in a bain-marie. I’ll also try it for tempering chocolate. Thanks!
