Nothing says summer to me more than s'mores. We've got a backyard fire pit, and I know that breaking out the chocolate, marshmallows and graham crackers is the secret to pulling the teen away from his phone and video games to hang with us for a while.
Don't have a fire pit? Then this S'mores Creme Brulee from the Taste of Home American Summer cookbook is a great way to enjoy those iconic summer flavors. I only made a minor change to the recipe, I used whole milk because it's what we have on hand. I used S'mores coffee, which is one of my absolute favorites from Door County Coffee & Tea Company.
I love any excuse to break out my kitchen torch, and I get to use it twice in this dish, first to caramelize the sugar, and then again to toast the marshmallows. If you don't have a torch you can do it under the broiler instead.
S'mores Creme Brulee
- 1 cup milk
- 3 large eggs
- 2/3 cup sugar
- 1/3 cup baking cocoa
- 2 tablespoons strong brewed coffee (I like Door County Coffee & Tea S'mores flavor) or coffee liqueur
- 2/3 cup graham cracker crumbs
- 2 tablespoons butter, melted
- 1/3 cup sugar or coarse sugar
- 2 cups miniature marshmallows
- 1 milk chocolate candy bar (1.55 ounces), broken into 12 pieces
- Preheat oven to 325°. In a small saucepan, heat milk until bubbles form around sides of pan; remove from heat. In a large bowl, whisk eggs, sugar, cocoa and liqueur until blended but not foamy. Slowly whisk in hot milk.
- Place six 4-oz. broiler-safe ramekins in a baking pan large enough to hold them without touching. Pour egg mixture into ramekins. Place pan on oven rack; add very hot water to pan to within 1/2 in. of top of ramekins. Bake 20-25 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean; centers will still be soft. Remove ramekins from water bath immediately to a wire rack; cool 10 minutes. Refrigerate until cold.
- In a small bowl, mix cracker crumbs and butter; set aside. To caramelize topping with a kitchen torch, sprinkle custards evenly with sugar. Hold torch flame about 2 in. above custard surface and rotate it slowly until sugar is evenly caramelized. Sprinkle custards with crumb mixture; top with marshmallows. Using torch, heat marshmallows until browned. Top with chocolate pieces. Serve immediately or refrigerate up to 1 hour.
- To caramelize topping in a broiler, place ramekins on a baking sheet; let stand at room temperature 15 minutes. Preheat broiler. Sprinkle custards evenly with sugar. Broil 3-4 in. from heat 3-5 minutes or until sugar is caramelized. Sprinkle custards with crumb mixture; top with marshmallows. Broil 30-45 seconds or until marshmallows are browned. Top with chocolate pieces. Serve immediately or refrigerate up to 1 hour.
