I gave this recipe 5 stars although I changed a primary ingredient - white "chocolate" (IMHO- a crime against real chocolate lovers everywhere :) to 4 oz of Ghirardelli's Semi-Sweet chocolate chips. The baking time was dead-on for the 4 small baking dishes that I used (just split it evenly between them, about 6 oz each). They were chilled for almost 24 hours before eating. Used raw sugar for the topping & my culinary torch instead of the broiler so it didn't really need to be rechilled. Kept one of these, before topping, in the frig for 3 days before eating and it was just as good, possibly better, then the first time around. Chocolate bliss!
This recipe was terrible. The egg curdled. Maybe I baked it for too long, or maybe it scrambled while I mixed the chocolate mix to the egg whites. Regardless, I will probably not try it again.
Great recipe and my new favorite dessert! The water bath works great. I used a pancake turner to lift the ramkins out of the water. And used my toaster oven on broil to carmelize the sugar and it took less than one minute. Stay with it during the carmelizing process to make sure it doesn't burn. Since I had a big dinner group, I carmelized the sugar and left them in the fridge for three hours before serving and they were delicious chilled all the way through. Added strawberries right before serving. My guests loved every morsel. Rave reviews with many requests for the recipe.
this is my go-to creme brulee recipe (i'm a beginner creme brulee maker). i've made three flavors with this recipe: this flavor, caramel chocolate, and peanut butter chips in place of chocolate. they've all been delicious but this flavor was the best. the only changes i would recommend are: use boiling or near boiling water around the ramekins and have the pan in the oven already- otherwise when you go to move it some of the water might slosh into the ramekin. also, i cooked mine at 325 degress for 35 minutes and they came out perfect! let them cool a couple hours before adding sugar and torching. and they get better after a night in the fridge. no need to rechill after torching either. i might use half and half next time- it makes enough for 7 small ramekins and that's a lot of calories if you aren't sharing with a lot of people! cutting the recipe in half would work too.
This was terrific! Very rich but wonderful. It was very easy to make. Will make for after dinner dessert again, thanks!
I made these for dessert Christmas Eve and they were a big hit. Very easy to make and delicous. They are a new family favorite.
What a fantastic desert. Made this yesterday had some today and if you love chocolate your gonna love this rich and creamy brilliant desert. Use only the best heavy cream, ( land o lakes) organic heavy cream, and place a towel on the bottom of your roasting pan. fill with boiling water to the half way point of the ramekin. Great tip to get rid of those bubbles pour through a strainer before you pour into ramekins. If you still have a few bubbles use your brulee torch on em and they will disappear. if you dont have a brulee torch trust me buy one at bed bath and beyond. good luck.... :)
It was easy to make and delicious. To caramelize the sugar better, I mixed equal parts brown and white sugar and then put it in my toaster oven for about 3 minutes. It had to be refrigerated again after being caramelized, so in the future, I will use a blowtorch to caramelize.
