Instant Pot Chocolate Creme Brule'


What can be better than silky smooth creme brulee with rich chocolate? Creme brule' is so easy to make. Much easier than a cake or cookies, you don't even need to get out the mixer, everything stirs right together. You don't even need to water-bath this version! Make in the instant a instant!

Use heart-shaped ramekins for a Valentines Day treat. This so easy and delicious, you'll look like a professional chef! For an elegant presentation, top with a few raspberries and a mint sprig.    

Instant Pot Chocolate Creme Brule'

2 egg yolks whisked together with
2 Tablespoons granulated sugar

1 cup hot heavy cream , heat in micro wave with
2 ounces of bittersweet or semi sweet chocolate, stir until melted

1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract

pinch of salt

Stir this altogether. 

Pour into 4 small- 4 ounce creme brule' ramekins. I found mine at a kitchen shop, however they also have them at Walmart or Amazon.  Do not fill to the top as you need to move them into the Instant Pot.

 Add 2 cups of water to the instant pot. Cover each ramekin with foil. Place the ramekins on a trivet/wire rack.

Put the Instant Pot to manual for 10 minutes, then natural release.

Cool to room temperature on the counter for 30 minutes and then refrigerate, two hours. Can be made a day ahead to this point.

Top with granulated sugar or dusting sugar and torch or broil until the sugar melts and is golden brown.

I like to garnish with strawberries or raspberries and a sprig of mint when available!

I love Valentines day and always plan a nice surprise for Wee Bear! Most February's we are in Jamaica enjoying a relaxing ocean fix! I usually embroider some boxers for him or get him a box of his favorite candies. Sometimes I make him a coupon book with cute coupons he can turn in to me..... a back rub, his favorite dinner or a foot massage...... 

Happy Valentines Day! Cheers! JJ
