PREHEAT oven to 300° F.



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.



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



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.



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.



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.

Awesome Dessert

I made this for my husband who loves chocolate. He said it was the best he has ever had. I will surely make this again.

This recipe deserves 10 stars

Truly the most decadent dessert I have tasted--ever. I used my kitchen torch to achieve the crunchy sugar crust, and these received RAVE reviews. Highly recommended by Chef Susan!
