  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Whisk egg yolks and 1 tablespoon sugar together in a bowl until sugar is dissolved. Whisk in eggnog, cream, and vanilla extract until thoroughly combined.
  3. Pour eggnog mixture into 4 ramekins. Place ramekins in baking dish; pour in enough boiling water to come half way up the sides of ramekins.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until set, about 1 hour. Cool slightly, cover ramekins with plastic wrap, and refrigerate at least 4 hours.
  5. Set oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven's broiler.
  6. Remove plastic wrap from ramekins. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon of sugar in a thin layer over top of each ramekin. Brown the sugar using a kitchen torch or under a broiler until golden and caramelized, 30 seconds to 1 minute.


  • Cook's Note:
  • Browning sugar to finish the creme brulee can be done with a kitchen torch instead of using a broiler, if desired.
  • Partner Tip
  • Reynolds® Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

This is very creamy with a slight egg nog flavor. I prefer to use a torch to caramelize the sugar. Everyone enjoyed it.
