Peppermint Whipped Cream:
Cook over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens and comes to a boil, about 12 minutes. Boil and stir 1 minute. Remove from heat immediately. Stir in chocolate, butter and vanilla.

Check for bubbles: It’s hard to see the first signs of boiling when stirring constantly. When you begin to feel a heavier drag on the spoon, start lifting the spoon up occasionally to check if any large bubbles are bursting at the top of the mixture. Keep cooking and stirring until large bubbles appear. Then boil and stir for 1 minute.
