Fake Creme Brulee



Combine the pudding with the milk in a saucepan on the stove on high.
Mix until it comes to a rolling boil.
Remove from the heat.
Divide into 4 ramekins or just one larger baking dish.
Place in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes so it sets.
Remove from the refrigerator and wait 10 minutes.
Sprinkle the sugar (I prefer granulated sugar but you can also use brown sugar) over each ramekin, making sure you cover all the pudding with a thin layer.
If you have a kitchen torch, use it to melt the sugar; be careful not to burn it.
In a pinch, place it under a broiler.
I cannot stress this enough: watch it so it does not burn.
You want the sugar to melt quickly and start to bubble almost.
Remove and let sit for 5 minutes before serving.
This is not the real thing but a pleasant substitute.
