Delicious topping!

Beth Hargrave from Roswell, GA

This was a very tasty recipe and we especially loved the orange flavor. I thought the texture would be a little creamier, but the flavor was very good.

    EASY and Very, Very Good

    Shawna Martin from Lancaster, PA

    This is the VERY BEST home made creme brulee recipe I have tried yet and there have been many! It is really, really easy, takes almost no time and turns out all but perfect (I always find home versions a little eggy - this is not bad at all). Also, the sugar crust on top actually works in this recipe unlike every one I have ever tried. Excellent.

    Dulce de Leche Creme BBrulee

    diane luciani from Amherstview, ON

    What a beautiful, decadent flavoured dessert. I will be using Evaporated milk instead of fresh creme from now on in my creme brulee. The orange Burnt sugar adds wonderful flavour to this dessert. This is the best and easiest Brulee recipe I have seen on the internet. Bravo!!!!!

    Not as difficult as one would think

    cheryl trosper from BALDWIN CITY, KS

    This was really not all that difficult to make. It takes a bit of time, but not the type that makes you stand at the stove forever. Served this to my husband, 14 yr old son and his friend and my chef apprentice daughter had it for breakfast this morning and all gave it a thumbs up.
