Ingredients

6 egg yolks
1/3 cup artificial white sweetener
1 ½ cup heavy cream
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 4 oz. unsweetened baking chocolate bar
4 tbsp. low carb brown sweetener



Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Whisk egg yolks and artificial white sweetener until sweetener is dissolved. Add cream, vanilla and chocolate. Continue to whisk until well blended.


Divide mixture into 4 four-ounce ramekins. Place in water bath and bake until set around edges (approximately 45 - 50 minutes.) Remove from oven and leave in water bath until cooled. Chill ramekins for at least two hours. Spread low carb brown sweetener on top of each ramekin and brown under broiler.
