This ridiculously quick and easy, yet elegant and delightful dessert is made without cream, although the result is very rich and creamy. Impossible, you say? Try it.

Yields: Serves 4


8 ounces dark chocolate, chopped

1 cup boiling water

1/4 cup flax oil

1 tsp peppermint extract

1 T Peppermint Schnapps (optional)

4 perfect mint sprigs, for garnish


Melt the chocolate in a steel bowl set over hot (but not boiling) water, stirring occasionally. Once it is melted, whisk in the boiling water, a tablespoon at a time. It will seize up at first, but keep whisking and adding the water until it becomes smooth and creamy. Whisk in the flax oil, peppermint extract and peppermint schnapps. Pour into 4 dessert goblets and refrigerate until set, at least 2 hours.

Remove from the refrigerator about 20 minutes before serving, and garnish with the mint sprigs at the last moment.

Additional Tips

Use at least 72% dark chocolate in this recipe.
