White Chocolate & Rosemary Crème Brulée Recipe
We're starting the week on a sweet note. Is there a better way?! I think not ;)
Especially when it concerns one of my all-time favorite desserts: Crème Brulée!
Seriously, I could eat it all day long.
And so for the sake of variety, and keeping this classic up to date, I like to experiment!

And experimenting usually comes in the form of infusing different flavors, or/and in the technique I use to get the results.

At time like these, it feel like my kitchen transforms into a lab...which is totally a welcome feeling that appeals to my scientific (nerdy) background ;)

White Chocolate & Rosemary Crème Brulée Recipe
Anywho, this crème brulée combo of white chocolate infused with rosemary was truly one of my most enjoyable experiments! And I partnered once again with NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® for their creamy, vanilla-flavored Premier White morsels. 
The white chocolate is rich and delicious, and perfectly flavored to help update my popular recipe!

White chocolate can totally stand up to stronger flavors, like mint.And at first, I did consider adding mint, but just didn't seem exciting enough...
So taking inspiration from my herb garden, I decide to try rosemary instead.My, oh my! Delicious, creamy, sweet and sophisticated. That's how I can describe it. 
Who knew a basic 'custard' could be so refined and make your taste-buds dance?!
The rosemary give a subtle hint of floral, with savory notes, which help balance and marries gorgeously with the vanilla sweet taste of the NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE®  Premium White Morsels.
