Creme caramels

By May 4, 2010

Follow me on:

A good meal deserves a good dessert. Crème caramels are a great dessert.

Smooth, subtle and rich, yet not overly so, crème caramels might just be my favorite way to end a meal.

The caramel is made by boiling together sugar and water to form caramel syrup. Depending on what you like, your syrup can be a light amber color or a deep, rich golden hue, which makes for a richer contrast in flavors.

I like mine a dark amber and ever so slightly bitter as I find this balances the smooth, sweet custard.
