  1. I only discovered a love of Creme Brûlée in the last few years, and for some strange reason it has never crossed my mind to combine chocolate with them - genius idea they sounds wonderful. You always have the sweetest little pots - love the spots!


  2. Yum, this looks delicious. This would be a lovely dessert!

  3. Creme brulee is one dessert I tried to stay away as much as possible because it is so sinful! I can literally feel it going straight to my waist the moment I swallowed a mouthful lol! Such sinful treat must be reserved only for very special ocassions! Beautifully done Kit, and those roses are gorgeous!

  4. This chocolate creme brulee looks so delicious!

  5. Very kawaii pots for your delish creme brulee! love that thick sugar crust!

  6. Kit , I just bookmarked this recipe :D Will need to buy a kitchen torch first ; the last time I caramelized something using the oven it didn't turn out right lol

    I love your creme brulee , the contrast between the smooth , chocolaty custard and the caramelized sugar looks really wonderful !

    Leftover egg yolks ? Citrus curds or make some ice cream er still snowing in your side of the world ? ;D

  7. Hi Kit! Nice one! My kids would love this... but I'm old school and stick to the original... :D

  8. nice! i think choc creme brulee may not be as rich or 'jelat' as the normal vanilla creme brulee..LOL! i'm just guessing.
    you can make ice cream with egg yolks :)

  9. Kit, this is so yum! I really have to go and buy ramekins!
