INGREDIENTS

1 cup whipping cream
1 cup half-and-half
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2/3 cup NESTLE TOLL HOUSE Dark Chocolate Morsels
4 large egg yolks
1/3 cup granulated sugar
6 teaspoons granulated sugar, divided

 

DIRECTIONS

1.Preheat oven to 300 degrees.

2.Place cream, half-and-half and vanilla extract in large saucepan. Bring to a boil; remove from heat. Add chocolate, whisk until melted and smooth.

3.Whisk egg yolks and 1/3 cup sugar in large mixer bowl. Gradually whisk in chocolate mixture.

4.Pour mixture through fine sieve into six 4-ounce ramekins or custard cups. Place ramekins in 13 x 9-inch baking dish; fill pan with hot water to 1-inch depth.

5.Bake for 40 minutes or until custards jiggle slightly when pan is shaken. Cool custards in water until cool enough to handle. Remove custards from water; refrigerate for 2 hours. Cover with plastic wrap; continue to refrigerate for several hours or overnight.

6.Preheat broiler. Sprinkle 1 teaspoon sugar over tops of each custard. Place custards on baking sheet. Broil for 3 minutes or until sugar is melted and caramelized (rotate pan as needed to prevent burning). Alternately, tops can be caramelized using kitchen torch. Refrigerate for 2 hours so that the topping can harden, and the custard can cool and set.
