Butterfinger pieces are the surprise ingredient at the bottom of these fun brûlées.

Ingredients:

  • 16 pieces NESTLÉ BUTTERFINGER BITES Candy, chopped (about 1/4 cup), divided
  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 10 tablespoons granulated sugar, divided
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 4 large egg yolks
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions:

PREHEAT oven to 300° F. Place about 1 tablespoon chopped Butterfinger into each of four 6-ounce ramekins or custard cups.

PLACE cream, 7 tablespoons sugar and salt in medium saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, for 5 to 6 minutes or until sugar is dissolved. Beat egg yolks in medium bowl; gradually whisk cream mixture into egg yolks. Stir in vanilla extract.

POUR cream mixture through a fine sieve into prepared cups. Place cups in 9-inch-square baking pan; fill pan with hot water to 1-inch depth. Loosely cover with foil.

BAKE for about 1 hour, 30 minutes or until knife inserted in centers comes out clean. Remove to wire rack to cool slightly. Refrigerate for several hours or overnight.

SPRINKLE each crème brûlée evenly with remaining sugar. Broil until sugar is melted and caramelized. Refrigerate for 10 to 15 minutes or until caramel has hardened.

This was a very good brulee. Took a lot longer in the oven, almost 2 hours. Everyone in my family loved it and wanted more. The second time I made it, I was feeling lazy and didn't put it through a sieve. It was still really good, not too much change. VERY EASY to make. would recomend it to anyone looking for a delicious dessert.

    I was searching for a recipe for plain crem brulee, so I just omitted the butterfinger candy. It turned out great, and we really enjoyed it, but it took longer to bake than recipe listed, also seemed a little too sweet -- I may cut back on sugar next time -- but definitely worth making again -- very easy and makes impressive dessert.

    Creme Brulee up a notch!

    June Fritts from SOUTH PORTLAND, ME

    Great recipe, although I did change it just a little as I was fortunate enough to have some fresh vanilla beans! (Also got new brulee "torch" for XMAS!)

    Excellent combination of flavors; curious, though, about the size of the candy bar to be used.

    DELICIOUS!!!

    CHERYL KAULUKUKUI from MANHATTAN BEACH, CA

    My sister taught me to make Creme Brulee and I've been making the original recipe for the past few years. Adding the Butterfinger to the Brulee makes it even better. I had dinner at her house recently and told her I would make dessert. I surprise her with the Butterfinger Creme Brulee. Her family loved it and of course I gave her the recipe. She called me last night to say she just made it for a dinner party she had, and of course it was a big hit with her guests.

    I made this for my husband for our "early" Valentine celebration and he was very impressed. I had never made creme brulee before either. It was wonderful.

    Will be a favorite

    Carol Trujillo from Rio Rancho, NM

    This was soooo good. I made it for my sister and brother-in-law and they couldn't believe how good it was. My brother-in-law wanted my sister to get the recipe so she could make it for them. I thought it was fairly easy to make.

    Ooooh soooo good

    Julie Schauer from REDWOOD CITY, CA

    Butterfingers are my daughter's favorite candy so when I made this for the three of us, she said the fourth one should be hers. However she allowed us each one bite before finishing it.

    I must have done something wrong

    sara from

    I am not a chef by any means and this recipe proves it. My brulees looked perfect! Unfortunately, they were lumpy. I know I did something terribly wrong, but not sure what. I followed the recipe to a T. Just be careful when you make this. The taste is out of this world good!

    Very good touch of butterfinger for the traditional creme brulee, but even with the butterfinger I always tend to add more sugar than what the recipe requires.
