My husband used to say I spent to much time on Very Best Baking but when I saw this recipe I decided to make it for him since he loves Irish Cream coffee. He loves it and now asks for it all the time. He no longer complains about me visiting Very Best Baking, he sits right next to me!!!

    Marti Colbert from Hollywood, FL

    Creme Brulee is always a hit at my house and this is quick & easy. A rich, sinful treat. I used a torch to caramelize the top. My family is already expecting this dessert for St. Patty's Day. It will be a wonderful finishing touch to a meal of cornbeef & cabbage. This recipe is a keeper!!

    creme brulee

    KATE WELCH from Wauwatosa, WI

    I made this but did not have the fluid Irish Cream, so I "liquefied" the powdered stuff and it turned out "o.k." I think maybe it is a good way to control the amount of flavor in the recipe (more or less intense) but DEFINITELY worth it in a pinch! Try this recipe, though (we did eat the whole recipe!)

    Creme Brulee with ease

    Mona Cole from CLARKSTON, MI

    I found this a very easy recipe after trying other versions. I have also substituted the Irish Creme for the Vanilla Coffeemate and/or Hazelnut and it is very good too. Try adding fresh berries for a real treat.

    Interesting custard

    Ms. Blaschuk from FARMINGDALE, NY

    This was a very interesting tasting custard. The Coffeemate was something I had never tried and we found that we reallly like the flavor. The carmelized sugar on top was perfect. A nice recipe.

    This was a challenging recipe but I loved making it! When you think of Brulee you think 'gourmet' and this recipe did not disappoint us. Very attractive (felt like a gourmet cook!), loved impressing my husband when I served his. It is delicious and so tasty. Will make it many times and 'add to my daily fare collection'. Sooo good.

    A treat for the whole family

    Linda Vwich from Everett, WA

    This was a fantastic treat easy to make and the irish creme was not the liquor but the coffee creamer so my kids got to try it too. I have a soft spot of creme brulees but now I make this one for our sunday family gatherings for the last 2 sundays and it was requested again for this sunday tooo.

    DONNA POWELL from PAWLEYS ISLAND, SC

    My family loves Creme Brulee so I just had to try this. I couldn't believe it could be good with coffee mate although I knew it was delicious in coffee. It was fabulous. The only thing I changed was using raw sugar instead of Brown sugar. Thanks for the recipe!
