Bailey’s and Chocolate Crème Brûlée

Not only is this Bailey’s and Chocolate Crème Brûlée recipe beyond delicious, it’s also the perfect sweet treat for your sweetheart this Valentine’s Day.

It has been forever since I’ve made a crème brûlée, literally like 15 years. I love crème brûlée but the last time I made it was when I was in the restaurant industry and it was on the menu which means I had to make it like 9,000 times, so essentially I was over it. Well fast forward 15 years and I’m in love all over again.

This dessert is incredibly easy to make as it’s literally only 5 ingredients, the only thing it requires is a little time. Perhaps one of the coolest aspect of this recipe, or any brûlée, for that matter is that you get to torch it to caramelize the sugar on top which adds a bit more sweetness to the mix. If for some reason you don’t like chocolate, or Bailey’s you can simply replace both of those with a bit of vanilla extract ad add a little more cream for a more traditional crème brûlée flavor.

Honestly, either way this recipe is fool-proof and dang delicious! First thing out of my wife’s mouth after taking a bite were, “Who you kidding with this recipe, Oh My Gosh!!” This one’s a sure winner!
