Chocolate Crème Brûlée

Indulge in the decadent delight of chocolate creme brulee.

It's a rich and creamy treat that adds a crisp sugary top to a smooth chocolate custard base.

INGREDIENTS: egg yolks granulated sugar heavy whipping cream baking chocolate vanilla extract

In a small bowl, whisk together the egg yolks and a tablespoon of sugar. Set aside.

In a small or medium saucepan, heat heavy cream, chocolate, and a tablespoon sugar until smooth.

Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the vanilla.

Mix a small amount of the hot chocolate filling into the egg yolk mixture.

Slowly pour the entire egg yolk mixture into the pan, stirring constantly.

Place ramekins in a baking or roasting pan. Fill each at least halfway up the sides.

Add 1 inch of boiling water into the pan. Bake uncovered until the center is almost set.

Remove the ramekins and cool slightly. Sprinkle the remaining sugar evenly over the custards.

Heat the sugar with a kitchen torch or under the broiler until it is browned to caramelize the sugar.

Refrigerate for 2 to 4 hours until firm before serving. Top with whipped cream and berries, if desired.
