This was very easy! If I knew how easy I`d be 300 pounds now!! My cat even liked it! I do have to get myself a torch!

The heavy cream was cloying. I generally use half and half for my creme brulee, and don't end up with 101.2 g fat per serving. Would be good otherwise.

It was an easy recipe. People that want diet food should probably avoid creme brulee for a desert choice. My family and friends loved this dish. I will continue to make this recipe. I highly reccommend it to anybody that loves rich deserts.
