Let’s face it – brownies are amazing. The world would be a dark place without them. The chewy, gooey slabs of chocolate and joy are some of our favourite things to make. Today our superstar brownies meet one of the all-time heavyweights of classic desserts – the crème brûlée.
It’s safe to say that the results aren’t bad. Intense dark chocolate brownie smothered with creamy vanilla frosting, finished off with a crispy golden topping. It’s a taste and texture sensation that I urge you to try!
The best thing about these slabs of splendour is that they are incredibly easy to make. If you have an electric mixer then that will save you even more time. The only other piece of equipment that’s advisable is a cook’s blowtorch. They’re becoming pretty affordable these days and have many non-crème brûlée uses (amazing for flame grilling a juicy steak).
We bought ours here from Amazon.
The only real tip is to work quickly with your blowtorch as the frosting can begin to melt if you’re not careful. If you don’t possess a blowtorch (yet – do get one, they really are great!) then you can pop them under the grill for a minute or two. But make sure it’s super hot and had time to come to temperature.
Other than that – go for it and get baking! You (and all of your new friends) wont be disappointed!
