This dessert is an Olympic Gold Metalist in the culinary dessert world according to Big Daddy.
For someone who doesn’t like many desserts, he flips over this

Dark Chocolate Creme Brulee
 It’s rich and creamy yet, amazingly, light and fluffy as well.
It’s sweet, but not tooo sweet.And it’s oh-so-elegant for the fanciest dinner party.
I developed it as a brulee with caramelized sugar on top.
 After trying it both with and without the brulee, Big Daddy prefers his without.
Honestly, it’s awesome either way.
Do the taste test and decide for yourself.
Olympic Gold Metal!
