Mint-White Chocolate Pots de Crème - Tuesdays with Dorie

Lavender in dessert - or anything at all - does not a happy family make in my home so I barely glanced at this month's chosen recipe for Lavender-White Chocolate Pots de Crème before checking Dorie's bonne ideé, hoping for an alternative flavour suggestion - she didn't let me down! Mint and citrus zest as replacements for lavender sounded good to me.
The mint was rather subtle and the flavour from the orange peel I used wasn't present at all so these were mainly decadently rich and creamy white chocolate baked custards - not a bad thing at all for fans of white chocolate. They went over well.
Visit here to see what everyone else made from Baking Chez Moi this week.

I have lavender to use up so I am going for it. I would make the mint alternative if I didn't have lavender. I am glad these worked out for you. They look pretty.

Yum, the bonne idee version sounds good - I did not even notice it. The lavender was pretty subtle too.

I think the lavender was so subtle...all of my tasters couldn't really identify it, just saying it was delicious. Yours look beautiful!!
