This so easy and delicious, you'll look like a professional chef! For an elegant presentation, top with a few raspberries and a mint sprig." — LSNEED62

white sugar, or as needed
This recipe turned out awesome. A previous reviewer was correct when she mentioned the quantity was off...after filling my ramekins I had plenty left over. Fortunately I was prepared with extra ramekins. I would also advise you to continuously stir the mixture while ladeling it out since the chocolate will settle to the bottom. I took this dessert to a dinner party and it got rave reviews. This one is a keeper in my family!
6 - 4oz ramekins (24 0z) used with 1 quart (32 oz)cream, plus eggs, sugar???? Help I need more ramekins !!! Too little chocolate for so much cream.
I feel like there is a lot wrong with this recipe and that I can't give it a good review even though it turned out in the end - and I really hate giving poor reviews. I was suspicious of a couple of things when I started, but my brulee experience is limited - so I wasn't sure I knew enough to start questioning the recipe. I should have anyway. I think there is an error in the amount of cream. Even scaling this recipe down to 4 servings, I ended up with 6 - and my ramekins are larger than 6oz (I also think if the cream amount was corrected that there may be a better chocolate ratio to this). The cooking time is either too long, or the oven temp is too high. I pulled mine out of the oven after 15 minutes because it started to bubble(!). There isn't quite enough chocolate in this, which was okay when I garnished it with more - but not really okay on its own. I think adding a block or two of chocolate to the Creme Brulee recipe on this site is the route I'll go next time if I want a chocolate brulee. Thanks for the recipe anyway! We ended up enjoying it. :)
This was a very easy recipe and delicious!! Rich and creamy.
I am a pastry chef so this is a good basic recipe that needed some help. One I added 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips. Second ladel only enough custard over the chocolate just to cover it and allow to melt. Whisk it till smooth. Then add the remaining custard. This will give you a smooth and uniformed chocolate cusrtard with out chocolate chunks. Then followed the recipe as stated. It was yummy.
This dessert was delicious!! My husband lost a bet and picked this to make for dessert, and I couldn't believe how good it was. It was easy enough for a very inexperienced cook!! We will definitly make this again and again, or should I say he will:)
We loved this creme brulee! I had a little trouble blending the chocolate into the egg and cream but it didn't affect anything. I've done it twice, still had trouble with the chocolate but it was wonderful anyways!
Absolutely delicious! I made it for a friend and she couldn't stop talking about it. AMAZINGLY GOOD!
