Crème Brulée with Praliné and Grué

The Praliné is a paste made of almonds and nuts cooked in sugar until caramel stage, cooled down and mixed. You can either buy it already made or prepare it.

Here is a tested recipe we prepare at work for an official dinner.

Ingredients (yield 10 depending on size)
  • 8 egg yolks
  • 100 gr sugar
  • 250 ml milk
  • 750 ml heavy cream
  • 100 gr praliné

  • Boil milk + cream. Mix with praliné when hot
  • Blanch yolks + sugar
  • Mix (milk/cream/praliné) and (yolk/sugar)
  • Pour in individual ramequins or in a large dish.
  • Bake at 200 F. (100 C.) until set (the center should slightly trembled)
  • Refrigerate for a few hours
  • Caramelize with sugar

We added a little bit of cocoa grué on the top to add a chocolaty flavor.
Grué is made of skinned and roasted cocoa beans crushed to create these cocoa nibs
