  7. In a deep pan put all 6 of your ramekins. Add water around the ramekins.  This is called a water bath.  It helps the creme brûlée to cook perfectly.
  8. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.  Remove and let cool at room temperature for 1 hour.  Then place in a refrigerator to cool fully.

Building your Creme Brûlée:

  1. Once your Creme Brûlée is fully cool place a thin or thick layer of caramel on top of each Creme Brûlée.  Top that caramel with a dusting of sea salt.

  1. Quick question
    What kind of carmel. Is that like an ice cream topper Carmel or melted Carmel candy? How much of the carmel do I need?

    1. Great question! Ice cream topper caramel works great. Just a thin layer will do. Once the entire creme brûlée is covered you are good to go.
