Milk Chocolate Caramel Crème- ‘Gebrannte Crème’

The combination of rich caramel and milk chocolate is truly magical. This milk chocolate version of the classic ‘Gebrannte Crème’ or ‘Burnt Crème’ topped with even more caramel is simply divine.

Tip: Cook the caramel quite dark for a nice colour and deep flavour but be careful not to burn it as it will turn bitter

Easy

Method

Step 1.

For the Crème Cook the sugar and the first amount of water to a brown caramel. Take off the stove and deglaze with hot water. Be careful of splashes! Return to heat and cook until all the lumps have dissolved

Step 2.

Thoroughly mix together The milk, cornflour, salt and egg. Add to the caramel and cook while whisking constantly until mixture is thickening.

Step 3.

Take off the heat And pour through a fine sieve into a metal bowl. Add the chocolate and stir until melted. Place some cling film straight onto the cream to prevent a skin from forming and cool fully.

Step 4.

Before serving Fold in the whipped cream and divide into serving dishes.
