Eggnog? Did someone say Eggnog? Yes, another delicious dessert and this time a creme brulee. This is a more time consuming recipe but worth it!

If you love Creme Brulee and Nog well..need I say more? This is one creamy, rich and nogalicious dessert as the flavors of rum, brandy and nutmeg are tasteful bites of heaven.

The total time for this dessert is 4 1/2 hours so it would be better to make it ahead of time.

How to Make Eggnog Creme Brulee

Step-by-Step

  1. Heat oven to 325F. Place eight 6-oz. ramekins or custard cups in 15x10x1-inch baking pan.
  2. Heat whipping cream in medium saucepan just to a simmer. Remove from heat.
  3. In medium bowl, combine egg yolks and eggs; beat well. Stir in sugar until combined. With wire whisk, stir in hot whipping cream until well blended. Stir in rum, brandy, vanilla and nutmeg. Pour mixture into ramekins.
  4. Place pan in oven; pour hot water into pan until 1/2 to 3/4 inch up sides of ramekins. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until centers are just set.
  5. Carefully remove from oven. Place cups on wire rack to cool. Cool 30 minutes. Refrigerate at least 3 hours or overnight.
  6. Before serving, place ramekins in 15x10x1-inch baking pan. Top each with 1 Tablespoon brown sugar. Broil 4 to 6 inches from heat for 1 to 2 minutes or until sugar is melted. (Watch closely.) Store in refrigerator.

    Tip:
    To sugar-coat the cooled custards, hold a strainer over each ramekin and press the brown sugar through. The even layer of sugar on the custards will melt evenly under the broiler.
