This chocolate-centric creme brulee retains the creaminess and caramelized-sugar topping of the classic version. Though caramel and chocolate are considered sweets, the real secret to their allure is an undercurrent of bitterness, a natural component of cacao and burned sugar.

    I just made this a couple of nights ago and it was great! Fortunately, we ordered an oven thermometer and found our oven was cooking cooler than what it was set on, so that made this a bit easier. Will be making this a gain very soon, although I may make them smaller, so we have a few more to go further.

    This is the best chocolate creme brûlée recipe! I added 2 tbsp of coffee while stirring in the chocolate (I love recipes that combine chocolate and coffee). A true crowd pleaser.

    I made this and it was delicious. Even with a torch (I used the broiler) it was good. You can see my results here: http://wp.me/plYaL-1sh
