  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. In medium microwavable bowl, microwave chocolate and peanut butter uncovered on High in 30-second increments, stirring after each until smooth.
  • 2
    In 1-quart saucepan, heat milk, cream, 1/4 cup sugar and 1 teaspoon vanilla over medium heat until hot, but not boiling. Add egg yolks to heatproof bowl. Add about 1/4 cup of the hot cream mixture to egg yolks. Beat with whisk until smooth; add remaining cream mixture, continuing to beat until smooth. Add chocolate mixture; mix well.
  • 3
    Strain mixture through a fine mesh strainer; divide among 4 (6- to 8-oz) ramekins. Heat a pot of water to boiling. Place ramekins in 13x9-inch baking pan, and place in oven. Pour hot water in pan halfway up the height of the ramekins.
  • 4
    Bake 45 to 55 minutes (centers will be jiggly). Carefully remove from oven; cool to room temperature. Remove ramekins from pan, and refrigerate 4 to 6 hours to chill completely.
  • 5
    Heat oven to broil. In small bowl, mix 1/4 cup sugar and 1/4 teaspoon vanilla; sprinkle over custards. Broil with tops 4 to 6 inches from heat 1 to 2 minutes or until sugar is melted and forms a glaze, or use kitchen torch to caramelize the tops of the custards.
  • 6
    Serve with toppings.

Expert Tips

  • The custard can be made up to three days in advance; just be sure to add the final layer of sugar and broil just before serving.
