Egg Nog Creme Brulee with Cranberry Sugar is a simple, make-ahead dessert that’s sure to wow holiday guests.
Elegant and refined this classic Christmas dessert gets a festive makeover from the flavors of egg nog, warm spices, and cranberry sugar.
It seems all restaurants feel obligated to include one dessert on their menus. Creme Brulee is a restaurant dessert staple for one reason, it’s absolutely delicious! Cool creamy custard and crunchy warm sugar topping. You’ll have a hard time finding someone to turn down a perfectly made creme brulee. But while everyone loves it most people are intimidated to make it at home.
I became determined to master crème brulee at home after I realized that time after time my husband and I would order it without hesitation. And when I did I was shocked at just how simple it is! I now make different versions all year long. Coffee Creme Brulee for my husband’s birthday, Chocolate Fudge Creme Brulee for Valentines Day, and this Egg Nog Creme Brulee with Cranberry Sugar for Christmas.
The Cranberry Sugar is not just for caramelizing creme brulee… try it as natural colored sparkling sugar to decorate cakes and cupcakes. Or, use it to add color and a bit of flavor to cocktails by rimming your glasses with it like I did with this Cranberry Paloma Punch.
