Chocolate Crème Brûlée

Author: Canadian Living

This is a simple dessert but seems a touch more special than the vanilla version. Serve biscotti on the side for more crunch.

Ingredients

  • 2 egg yolks
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 oz bittersweet chocolate chopped and melted
  • 2/3 cups whipping cream
  • 2 tablespoons milk
Topping:
  • 2 tablespoons packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons packed granulated sugar

Method

In bowl, whisk egg yolks with sugar until thickened; whisk in chocolate, then cream and milk. Pour into two 6-oz (175 mL) ramekins or custard cups. Place in shallow pan; pour in enough boiling water to come halfway up side of ramekin.

Bake in centre of 325°F (160°C) oven until edge is set, centre jiggles slightly and knife inserted in centre comes out creamy, about 35 minutes. Remove from water; let cool on rack. Cover and refrigerate until chilled and set, about 2 hours. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate for up to 2 days.)

Topping: Place cups on small baking sheet; sprinkle evenly with sugar. Using blowtorch or placing 6 inches (15 cm) under broiler, heat until sugar bubbles and darkens, about 2 minutes. Chill, uncovered, for 30 minutes.
