How to Make Chocolate and Blackberry Tart Creme Brulee

Step-by-Step

  1. Line crust with foil or wax paper and fill with beans or rice to keep crust from puffing up.
    Bake crust 8-10 mins in 400 degree oven.Remove foil and beans and continue baking for about 12 mins till golden brown.Cool

    In a large bowl, whisk together egg yolks,sugar, cream, sour cream and vanilla.Transfer to the top of a double boiler or a heat proof bowl set over a pan of simmering water.
    Cook stirring constantly till custard thickens, about 30 mins.
    When custard is thick enough to coat the back of a wooden spoon, remove from heat and strain into a large clean bowl.The custard will thicken as it cools.Keep custard chilled until ready to use.

    Melt chocolate and spread over the baked crust.Cover with berries.Top with cooled custard, smoothing with back of a spoon.

    When ready to serve sift sugar over entire top.
    With a little propane torch....Yes!! I have one and love it.....melt the sugar .
    It can be done under a broiler too although I have never done my Brulee this way.
    Chill a few minutes before serving.
  2. Serve with fresh blackberries on the side.
