Step by step recipe

Stage 1 - 5 min.
Mint and chocolate cream
Coarsely chop 30 g fresh mint leaves.

Stage 2 - 10 min.
Mint and chocolate cream
Pour 500 ml whole milk into a saucepan over medium heat and bring to a boil.

Stage 3 - 15 min.
Mint and chocolate cream
As soon as the milk boils, turn off the heat, add the mint leaves, stir, cover, and let stand for 15 minutes.

Stage 4 - 3 min.
Mint and chocolate cream
After this time, pour the contents of the pan into a fine strainer set over a bowl.

Squeeze the mint leaves well to fully express the flavor.

Stage 5 - 2 min.
Mint and chocolate cream
Pour the mint milk back into the pan (which you will have quickly cleaned) and put back on low heat.

Add 50 g dark chocolate, cut into small pieces or better yet into chocolate drops (pistoles) and 20 g caster sugar.

Stage 6 - 5 min.
Mint and chocolate cream
With a whisk, stir gently to melt the chocolate completely, turn off the heat as soon as it is finished.

Stage 7 - 3 min.
Mint and chocolate cream
Dilute 25 g cornflour in 3 tablespoons water, and whisk this mixture into the milk all at once.

The cream will thicken in seconds.

Stage 8
Mint and chocolate cream
Divide the cream between ramekins, cups or glasses and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.

Stage 9
Mint and chocolate cream
Serve cold, if possible decorated with a few mint leaves.
If you prefer a little more sweetness, you can increase the weight of sugar a little, or replace half of the dark chocolate with milk chocolate.

The amount of mint leaves indicated is quite indicative, if you want a more pronounced mint taste, don't hesitate to increase (very) significantly the dose.
1 or 2 days in the refrigerator, protected by a stretch film.
Home made.
