Well I'm not sure what I did wrong. My 'caramel' is hard as a rock, there's a brownish liquid under my 'custard' and my custard has an odd texture. I had difficulty getting the cream cheese to mix in. My ingredients were fresh and not old or expired. I have no idea how I'm going to get this 'caramel' out of my glass bowl ramekins. It tastes fine. Any seasoned cooks care to give me pointers of what I did wrong? Thanks.

Lovely dessert! I do need to ask a question, custard was great...under it was very tasty but very runny liquid...under that was hardened caramel that took several days in water to loosen enough to dig out. What did I do wrong???

Penny....I do it in one baking dish and turn it out onto a serving dish. This is the best way for an unknown number of guests!!
