DIRECTIONS

  • Melt chocolate in a double boiler.
  • Preheat oven to 300 F.
  • Remove from heat and whisk in 3 tbsp sugar, egg yolks, cream, vanilla, and liqueur.
  • Toast macadamia nuts by spreading on a baking sheet and baking for 10-12 minutes, watching to make sure they do not burn.
  • Split nuts between 6 ramekins.
  • Pour chocolate mixture on top of nuts.
  • Place ramekins in a baking dish and fill baking dish with water until it is halfway up the sides of the ramekins (DO NOT drip or splash any water into your ramekins).
  • CAREFULLY place in the oven and bake 40-50 minutes, until set around the outside and loose in the center.
  • Remove from oven and let cool to room temperature while still in the water bath.
  • Remove ramekins from water bath and chill in the fridge for at least 2 hours.
  • Just before serving, top with the remaining sugar in a thin layer (you don't have to use all the sugar) and caramelize with a creme brulee torch.
  • Allow caramelized sugar to cool and harden (takes less than a minute).
