This Dulce de Leche Cr'eme Brulee my son loves it.


This was a very tasty recipe and we especially loved the orange flavor. I thought the texture would be a little creamier, but the flavor was very good.


I've never had anything like this before and WOW it was great. Dessert with a little kick. Not sure what the rest of the family will think. But I like it, more for me if they don't like it.


YUMMY !!!!!!!!! and I thought, I could not make this delicious dessert. I did it. It was so good.


This Dulce de Leche Creme Brulee is so good and really easy to make. And it looks, and taste like you spent hours in the kitchen. Thanks...


What a beautiful, decadent flavoured dessert. I will be using Evaporated milk instead of fresh creme from now on in my creme brulee. The orange Burnt sugar adds wonderful flavour to this dessert. This is the best and easiest Brulee recipe I have seen on the internet. Bravo!!!!!


This Treat is wonderful for guest's, my child's special rewards when they get A's or B's at school, behave very well with others & make us proud! My Husband & I could go On & On
