Crème brulée is a smooth, creamy custard topped with a crackling crown of burnt sugar,
and literally means "burnt cream." This kit is made for after-dinner ease. Simply top each ramekin
with the sugar provided and caramelize for a few minutes under your broiler. For extra flourish, top
with fresh raspberries and serve with champagne. This is one of those desserts that's sure to impress
You can also forego the sugar and simply let the custard thaw at room temperature before enjoying on its own.
Please note: This item will arrive frozen.
|Preparation options: Oven Broil (preferred method): Do not thaw. Position oven rack 3-4 inches from broiler element so the top of the Creme Brulee will be 1-2 inches from the broiler element. Set oven to broil. For electric ovens let broiler element preheat for 2 minutes. Remove plastic wrap from ramekin and place on baking sheet. Sprinkle one packet of sugar evenly across Creme Brulee. Place Creme Brulee on positioned oven rack for 2-5 minutes or until sugar begins to melt or bubble. Watch carefully. Ramekin and sugar will be hot. Using caution, remove baking sheet from oven and allow Creme Brulee to stand 4-8 minutes. Sugar topping will harden while custard sets. Serve and enjoy! Alternative method: Thaw and serve.
