4 Tropical Creme Brulee Flavor Creations

1 quart heavy cream
1 vanilla bean, split and scraped
1 cup vanilla sugar, divided
6 large egg yolks
2 quarts hot water

2 single serving packets of Nescafe Tasters Choice Instant Coffee
3 table spoons of The Perfect Puree Of Napa Valley – Passion Fruit Gourmet Concentrate
Half Package of Chaokoh Coconut Milk Powder
1 Package of Land Lakes Cocoa Hot Cocoa Mix

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.

Place the cream, vanilla bean and its pulp into a saucepan set over medium-high heat until it comes to a boil. Next remove it from the heat and cover it and let sit for about 15 minutes. After its sit remove the vanilla bean and set it aside for another use.

Next take out medium size bowl and whisk together 1/2 cup sugar and the egg yolks until well blended (it will start to lighten in color once ready). Now take the cream and add a little at a time to the mixture stirring continually. Now divide the mixture into 4 equal parts (in different bowls) and add the flavor components (one to each bowl) listed above. Next pour the liquid into 12 (4-ounce) ramekins (if you have different size ramekins thats ok you will just have fewer creme brulees). Place the ramekins into a large cake pan or roasting pan. Pour enough hot water into the pan to come halfway up the sides of the ramekins. Bake just until the creme brulee is set, but still trembling in the center, approximately 40 to 45 minutes. Remove the ramekins from the pan and refrigerate for at least 2 hours. Now for the fun part… Remove the creme brulee from the refrigerator for at least 15-30 minutes prior to browning the sugar on top.
