Creme Brûlée is my FAVORITE favorite favorite dessert.  But I understand that there are some out there that really prefer a chocolate dessert.  I have the perfect solution – chocolate creme brûlée.  My husband and I first discovered this combo at a local restaurant – and honestly  – I was unimpressed.  It tasted like jello pudding with a sugar crust.  I new I could do better.  So I pulled out my vanilla creme brûlée recipe and made a few adjustments and this rich chocolate piece of heaven was born.

Ingredients
  • 4 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 6 ounces semi sweet chocolate chopped
  • 4 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 6 egg yolks
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup sugar for topping
  • berries and chocolate shavings for garnish
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  2. In a large sauce pan heat sugar, chocolate, and cocoa powder and bring to just a boil. Stir continuously so that chocolate incorporates into the cream.
  3. Remove from heat and let cook.
  4. Mean while in a stand mixer, using the whist attachment whisk eggs and sugar until they are pale yellow.
  5. with the whisk still moving slowly add the chocolate cream mixture. If you add it too fast it will cook the eggs, so add about 1/4 cup at a time whisking in-between each addition.
  6. Once incorporated divide between ramekins, so half pint mason jars. Place in a baking dish and fill the dish with hot water until the water reaches half way up the sides of the jars.
  7. Bake for 40-45 minutes.
  8. Remove from oven and let cook for 1 hour.
  9. Transfer to the fridge and chill for 2 hours.
  10. Sprinkle sugar on the top of each and caramelize the sugar one of two ways. The first is to use a kitchen torch and in a circular motion melt sugar until it is golden brown. Let cool for 5 minutes. The second is to use your oven broiler. Broil on high for 8-10 minutes until sugar bubbles. Let cool for 15 minutes.

  5. Creme Bruelee has been my favorite dessert since I was a child, but I’ve never made it; I’m afraid I’d eat it all in one sitting.

    I’m crazy about soup and other one pot meals, but lately things I’ve made just haven’t hit the spot So, I always go back to my favorite healthy and yummy sou: Tuscan Vegetable Soup.

  6. the barbecue chicken pizza on the grille was AMAZING! I loved being able to put my favorite sauce and veggies on it and have the dough be thoroughly cooked all around!!! Thanks so much!!!

  7. It looks like it might be some work but I’ve been wanting to try and make Cream Puffs especially after I saw the kids from Master Chef Junior make them. I saw the recipe for the Caramel Vanilla ones so I want to give that a go. Wish me luck!! Great giveaway!
