Creme Brulee is one of my very favorite desserts and this one is a bit different with the bitter chocolate and coffee offsetting the lovely sugary crust very nicely.  Anyone who loves a creamy custard like dessert is going to be a fan of creme brulee. This one is particularly fitting for a festive occasion being a bit more on the dressy side, with the chocolate and added flavors of coffee.

1 and one half cups sugar

2 cups half and half

1 tablespoon instant coffee

1 tsp vanilla

2 whole eggs

6 egg yolks

3 ounces bitter baking chocolate

3 tablespoons brown sugar.

Beat all ingredients except the chocolate with a wire whisk

pour into custard cup or ramekin

bake 35 minutes til set

Grate the chocolate over the top of it

spread to form a thin layer of chocolate and sprinkle with additional half teaspoon brown sugar

broil for about two minutes or torch it with a kitchen torch
