Hazelnut Crème Brûlée is my way to celebrate the “sweetest” day of the year. Crème Brûlée is a French dessert consisting of a rich custard base, topped with a layer of caramelized sugar. I flavored this scrumptious dessert with hazelnut spread and garnished with organic fresh berries.

Servings : 6

Difficulty : easy

Prep Time : 15 min.+ 2 hours rest

Cook Time : 45 min.

 

INGREDIENTS

5 egg yolks

1/3 cup granulated sugar

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 pint heavy whipping cream, room temperature

6 tbsp hazelnut spread

granulated sugar, to sprinkle

 

DIRECTIONS

Preheat oven at 250 F degrees.

With a hand or stand mixer, beat egg yolks and sugar until white and frothy.

Stir in the vanilla extract.

Gradually add the heavy whipping cream and whisk until smooth.

Spread evenly a tablespoon of hazelnut spread on the bottom of each ramekin.

Pour the cream mixture into the prepared ramekins, filling them almost to the top.

Bake for about 45 minutes or until set but still trembling in the center.

Allow to cool at room temperature.

Let rest in the fridge for at least 2 hours.

Sprinkle each custard with a thin layer of granulated sugar and caramelize with a kitchen torch until a crispy top forms. (If you don’t have the torch, place the ramekins under the broiler for a couple of minutes)

Serve immediately accompanied with fresh berries.
