Spooning – Perfect Creme Brûlée



Spooning is one of my favorite activities. There’s something so satisfying about tucking yourself into something sweet and creamy. Whether nuzzling into a cold scoop of ice cream or a hot cobbler, good spooning makes you feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Some people will say spooning is best after a foodgasm, late at night after you’ve worked your way through a savory sensations, I say it’s always a good time for spooning. Midday, late at night, or early morning. Indulge yourself and get coddled in some sweetness. 

There’s no wrong way to do it, but I do have a soft spot for creme brûlée! There’s something so satisfying about breaking through that hard surface to find a perfect creamy center. It’s hard work but defiantly worth it.
