Death By Dark Chocolate Creme Brulee






2 cups heavy whipping cream

1/4 cup dark chocolate ChocZero chocolate chips (see info and link below for discount)

2 tablespoons black cocoa powder

4 drops black Candy Color

(be sure to use gels, as shown here. Traditional food color is water based and will seize up the creme brulee. You can also skip this step, it just won't be as dark in color!)

5 egg yolks, room temperature

3/4 cup Pyure confectioner sugar substitute and 3 tablespoons, separated (Pyure brand yields

the best carmelization results)

1/4 teaspoon pink Himalayan salt

Additional:

6 cups water

Tools Needed

8 ramekin cups (4 oz each)

metal 9x13 baking dish

Medium pot

Cooking spray




Directions:

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit

Heat the heavy cream in a medium sauce pan until the cream comes to a steady

simmer. Do not boil. Add in the chocolate chips, cocoa powder, and black candy color (if utilizing). Whisk together very well and reduce heat to low. Continue to observe and mix.


In a separate bowl, beat the egg yolks and 3/4 of the powdered sugar substitute

together for approximately 3 minutes, to achieve a light creamy texture.

Meanwhile bring the 6 cups of water to a boil on the stove.

Add about 1/4 cup of the warmed cream mixture into the egg and powdered sugar

substitute mix. Stir thoroughly until combined. Then add the remaining eggs in and mix

very well. (Do not add the cream all at once to the egg yolks or you will end up with

scrambled eggs!).

Evenly distribute the custard amongst your ramekins. Place the ramekins in your 9x13

baking dish and add the boiling water to the pan until the water is halfway up the sides

of each ramekin.

Bake for 30-35 minutes until the center is barely set. Allow to cool at room temperature, then transfer to your refrigerator for a minimum of 4 hours before serving. (Best if refrigerated overnight)



When you're ready to serve, top each ramekin with the remaining powdered sugar substitute (1/2 tablespoon each)

You can then "carmelize" the top with a brulee torch, or place your oven rack to the top position

and heat your oven to a high broil.

Once the oven is heated, add your creme brulees

topped with the sugar substitute and broil for 1-2 minutes. Allow to cool and enjoy!
