It is no secret that I love chocolate and peppermint as a combo, so this was a natural progression for me.
A beautiful creamy peppermint custard base with a decadent Brew Choc ganache on top. Easy as a small dessert for a cast of thousands (which is precisely what I did originally) or in bigger tea cups for about 6-8 people. Cue the candy canes for a festive feel, or leave them plain for any other occasion. Amazing!
