Okay, so…Creme brulee is probably one of my favorite things to bake. It’s versatile (sooo many flavor options), fairly simple once you’ve done it a few times, and SO MUCH FUN to torch before serving.
It has become a bit of a tradition for me to make my boyfriend, Nevin, creme brulee for special occasions (birthdays, anniversaries, Valentine’s etc). I have tried making a different flavor each round that I make it. A couple years ago I had made Nutella creme brulee for a Valentine’s Day, and it turned out amaaazingly.
When I found out that this month’s Chocolate Party was double chocolate, I immediately thought of doing it again, with some kind of chocolate dipped fruit on top. Because I am in Spain, I can’t make the usual treat for Nev, so I’m dedicating this post to him (since we won’t be able to have a dinner/dessert date in person)! We will be travelling Italy together for two weeks at the end of this semester, so that’ll be our celebration! This recipe is peeerfect for Valentine’s because it only makes 2 ramekins! Whenever I’ve made it in the past, I haven’t worried about making a full recipe because I’d just give away the extras! But I thought it’d be fun to do a mini-version for anyone who wants to make a nice dessert without having a ton left over for Valentine’s.

So Happy (early) Valentine’s Day to Nev! I love you! 😀
