- Melt the white chocolate in a bain marie.
- Add the egg yolks and whisk until completely incorporated.
- Heat up the heavy cream a little, add the vanilla and add it to the bain marie. (If you are using a vanilla bean, scrape out the seeds with a small knife and add them to the heavy cream. Heat over low heat and as soon as it starts to simmer, remove from heat and set it aside for 1 hour before using. This is done so that the cream can become infused with the vanilla aroma.)
- Whisk to combine and transfer mixture to a clean pot.
- Place over LOW heat and stir continuously with a wooden spoon. It is VERY important to heat it over low heat because you DON’T want the eggs to cook in to an omelet.
- Keep stirring until the mixture becomes thick enough to coat the back side of the wooden spoon without running and remove from heat.
- Pass the cream through a sieve and divide between 6-8 ramekins for crème brulee.
- Refrigerate for 1 day.
- The following day and right before serving, turn on the broiler in the oven on high. Position the oven rack on the highest level and when the oven has become hot enough, sprinkle the sugar over the crème brulee.
- Cook in the oven for a few minutes, until the sugar melts and turns golden brown.
- Serve immediately!
