This recipe tasted great!!! I followed suggestions from other users and steeped the mint for 30 minutes. I also subbed 60% Cocoa because I love dark chocolate.
I didn't like this recipe. The fresh mint has an odd taste, unlike the mint flavoring in most foods. I don't know what type of mint you are actually buying when you purchase fresh mint. This flavor combination of chocolate and mint doesn't go together nearly as well as in mint chocolate chip ice cream or Andes mints. The chocolate flavor wasn't anything to write home about either. I will not be making this recipe again.
Fabulous! I took the suggestion and steeped the milk a bit longer with the mint and the flavor was perfect. I also subbed half of the sugar with Truvia. The end result was delicious and a little goes a long way.
I served this to a friend who said it was "crazy good". I left the mint in longer than call for and also used bittersweet chocolate pieces for a darker feel.
Delicious! I steeped the mint in the milk sligtly longer than suggested, and a bold mint flavor shone through at the end. This was simple to make,but it tasted very decadent. I'm very happy this light dessert tasted like it could be served in a high-end restaurant.I reduced the sugar by half, resulting in a dark-chocolate tasting finish, which suits my tastes just fine.
This has become a true staple in our house. I usually let the mint steep in the milk 30-40 minutes because we like it strong. The pudding turns out rich, creamy, and has a great mouth-feel. It amazes people when they find out how light it really is.
Love this! I make it every year as soon as the mint in my garden comes in. This really doesn't taste light!
