Do you have that one dessert, that when you see it, your heart skips a beat? That one that makes you have to closely monitor yourself to make sure you are not drooling in front of everyone? The one you catch yourself dreaming and day-dreaming about?
That is Creme Brûlée for me.
Typically, I am a chocolate girl through and through… and while Chili’s Hot Chocolate Molten Lava Cakes (not sure if that is even its correct name, that is just what I call it) places a close second, I just LOVE Creme brûlée!
I recently purchased a torch, PURELY for the purpose of making my own Creme Brûlée!… Of course I will use it for other things, but Creme Brûlée has been on the mind lately and I couldn’t wait to try making it myself. It turned out fantastic. Seriously when you take a bite of this, it will be make you feel like you are eating a million bucks! Each and every bite is so creamy, rich and sweet. The top is crisped over with the melted sugar and adds such a nice touch to the creamy custard. Make this, because you will be so happy you did.
This recipe is still delicious even if you don’t have a torch to caramelize sugar on top. In fact, my husband prefers it without. Go figure :)
