Chocolate-Raspberry Creme Brulee
Total TimePrep: 25 min. Bake: 40 min. + chilling
- 8 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped
- 4 cups heavy whipping cream
- 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar, divided
- 8 large egg yolks, beaten
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 30 fresh raspberries
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- Additional fresh raspberries, optional
- Place chocolate in a large bowl. In a large saucepan, bring cream and 1/2 cup sugar just to a boil. Pour over chocolate; whisk until smooth. Slowly stir hot cream mixture into egg yolks; stir in vanilla.
- Place three raspberries in each of 10 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 (custard will jiggle). Remove ramekins from water bath; cool 10 minutes. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours.
- 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.
- 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. If desired, top with additional fresh raspberries.

This was BEYOND delicious! With rich, deep, and downright beautiful flavors, this is a treat that I cannot wait to make again! Since my family are not raspberry lovers, I substituted strawberries, and it was still wonderful. I want to try more chocolate compatible fruit, and even without fruit altogether! This is a keeper recipe, without a doubt!
