Keto Candy Cane Creme Brulee

by hungryelephant

Getting in the holiday spirit with these candy cane creme brulees! Super yummy custard with a hint of peppermint and a nice hard sugar substitute crust. I liked to sprinkle a crushed sugar free candy cane on top or you can caramelize the candy cane!

So because I moved earlier this year, I didn’t have torch. That means I had to broil it – but my stove doesn’t have a broiler? So I had to use what I had available. You could definitely get yours a little bit browner and caramelized than mine.

As for the sugar free candy canes – you can find a TON of those online! Or (similar to me) you could crush up sugar free peppermint hard candies.

 

My first cookbook is out now! Buy it on Amazon!

Thank you!

I’m having a hard time finding ones online that don’t have aspartame (want to avoid it). Plus they are super pricey!

I will keep searching. Thank you for your reply 🙂
