Delicious and decadent Red Wine Creme Brulee, full of flavor, sealed with a perfectly crunchy and caramelized topping.
Hi, lovely friends! Happy Monday!
Wanna talk about keepin’ it classy? Over the weekend, I went to a gathering of sorts. I was all dolled up – I got my hair did, my makeup done… I was bringin’ it!
Then I had a bottle of wine…
All class went out the window. 😉
How was your weekend?!
But. This. This Red Wine Creme Brulee = classy. And elegant, and creamy, and rich, and hot dang, delicious! Goodness gracious, this was SO GOOD!
You know, I make creme brulee kind of often… we like it. Especially me. I like creamy desserts. I say no to cupcakes and cookies, but never, have I ever EVER said no to creamy, decadent desserts.
Whatever you do, PUHLEASE do not dismiss this dessert as something that might be complicated… it’s not! If you know how to whisk egg yolks, and pour heavy cream in a saucepan, you’re set. Just don’t pour the hot milk mixture into the egg yolks all at once, unless you want scrambled eggs for dessert, instead of creme brulee.
In case you’re wondering what hubby and I will be enjoying on Valentine’s Day for dessert, it won’t be this. Only because we already enjoyed it last weekend. I’m thinking about making that French Silk Tart – it’s been a while.
But YOU! You should totally make it and enjoy it with your other half. It’s slightly tangy, it’s perfectly sweet, and it brings a lovely romantic touch.
Also. It’s naturally gluten-free! So, for those that have been asking me about gluten-free desserts, TA-DA! Here you go!
Also? How do you feel about a KitchenAid Stand Mixer?! Because I’m kind of giving one away! WOOOOT! A few of my bloggy friends and I are sponsoring this giveaway – if you have a moment, please scroll down and pay them a visit by clicking on their links!
