Directions

  1. Place chocolate in a small bowl. In a small saucepan, bring cream and 1/2 cup sugar just to a boil. Pour over chocolate; whisk until smooth. Stir a small amount of hot cream mixture into egg yolks. Return all to the pan, stirring constantly. Remove from the heat; stir in vanilla.
  2. Place 3 raspberries in each of ten ungreased 6-oz. ramekins or custard cups. Evenly divide custard among ramekins. Place in a baking pan; add 1 in. of boiling water to pan. Bake, uncovered, at 325° for 40-50 minutes or until centers are just set (mixture will jiggle). Remove ramekins from water bath; cool 10 minutes. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours.
  3. Combine brown sugar and remaining sugar. If using a creme brulee torch, sprinkle custards with sugar mixture. Heat sugar with the torch until caramelized. Serve immediately.
  4. If broiling the custards, place ramekins on a baking sheet; let stand at room temperature for 15 minutes. Sprinkle with sugar mixture. Broil 8 in. from the heat for 4-7 minutes or until sugar is caramelized. Refrigerate for 1-2 hours or until firm. Yield: 10 servings.
