Crème Brûlée is a french custard dessert served with a soft base and hard caramelize sugar by a torch on top. It’s a fairly easy dessert to make and is many people’s favorite. Depending on your preference you may try making this in a more shallow or wider ramekin or some call it a crème brulee dish where it’s wide and shallow, allowing more area for the hard caramelize sugar to form on top. You can easily store them in the fridge for a couple days in a air tight container and wait until you serve to caramelize the top, it will makes for a great mix of warm top and cold bottom as well as a nice fan service to show off the torching portion to your guests. Overall the recipe is easy and simple to make requiring little preparations.
