Creme Brulee

So, Creme Brulee´ is one of our favourite desserts.
For quite some time Hubby and I have been keeping our eyes open for the perfect dishes for this lovely treat.  When we finally found them for a reasonable price, we scooped up 10 of them.
Previously Hubby had invested in a blowtorch, to keep handy for when you need to melt the sugar on top of the creme brulee´... (he did use it for starting up fires in our fireplace as well, while I prefer a traditional match stick for that purpose).  Hubby and our little boy think that the torch is majorly cool!
After several months of wanting to make this dish, we finally had all the componets handy to make it possible.
They sell a ready mix in the store that you just need to heat up, pour in to the dishes, chill and serve.
But of course, before serving you need to add the sugar that you need the -"ta-da"- BLOW TORCH for!
This was a few months ago, and I captured the moment...

Sprinkling sugar on top.
We used brown sugar, but when we made them the 2nd time a while back,
we used white sugar, which worked better.

Eager audience waiting for the fire action!

"Stand back citizens, we have here the powerful flame thrower!"
(never mind my dear Hubby's powerful long john's...)

Action.  Melting sugar!!

Action.  Eating the delicious dessert...
