Chocolate-Creme Brulee Ice Cream Sandwiches

The same custard used in the sophisticated creme brulee becomes a more casual treat when cooked in a baking pan, frozen, cut into circles, and then layered between crisp caramelized-sugar tuiles.

  • prep: 20 mins
    total time: 4 hours 20 mins
  • yield: Makes 15




Cook's Note

Custard can be frozen for up to 3 days before cutting for sandwiches.


  1. Step 1

    Follow steps 1 and 2 to make chocolate creme brulee. Pour mixture into an 8-inch baking dish. Transfer dish to a roasting pan, and fill pan with enough boiling water to reach halfway up the sides of dish. Bake until custard is just set, 1 hour to 1 hour 10 minutes. Let cool.

  2. Step 2

    Freeze custard for at least 4 hours. Cut out circles using a 2-inch round cookie cutter. Place between 2 tuile cookies.
