On our recent trip to Alaska, I fell in love with creme brulee. I was surfing the web and found this version. DH loves Butterfinger candy bars. What could be more perfect? This recipe is brought to you by Nestle.

This was my first attempt at crÃ¨me brÃ»lÃ©e and I followed the directions exactly. It was much easier than I expected, but the taste met with mixed reactions around my house. The custard part was sweet and rich with a nice light vanilla flavor and it was sort of peanut buttery on the top and bottom edges. I don't know why it didn't go over better. I'd bet we're among the very few who won't love it, but I don't think I'll make it again myself. Sorry.
