Chocolate Creme BruleeTake a good look at this photo.  I know, it’s not easy to orient yourself to what’s going on there, because, silly me, I dove in with my spoon before remembering to take a picture!  But that’s how good it looked; I could not restrain myself. 

But I quicky regained my blog consciousness and staved off friend Betty from also diving in while I took a quick shot.  This, my friends, is the chocolate crème brulée from the Indian Rock Inn of Upper Black Eddy, PA.  

After a very good lunch (most had roast duck; I had onion soup and lobster cakes), the four of us decided to share two orders of the chocolate crème brulée.  Here is what the brilliant chef (Val Roy Gerischer) did:  He put very rich and creamy chocolate “pudding” in the ramekin, topped it with – get this! – marshmallow fluff, and then sugared and torched the top.  Rather like a s’more, but much, much better!

  2. The amazing thing was that the chocolate, which looked like milk chocolate pudding, tasted like hot fudge.

    I’m not a dessert eater as a rule, but I’d drive miles for that chocolate creme brulee! I hope it didn’t revive my long-dead sweet tooth.

  3. Yea Faith! Only you could describe in words the tasty joy of a gushy, rich, choco-late (very late) dessert mit marshmallows flambe no less. What am I doing sitting here before my tasteless laptop when I could be eating – anything at all. Time to log-off and eat-up.
