  • Before serving, let custards stand at room temperature for 20 minutes. Meanwhile, for caramelized sugar, in an 8-inch heavy skillet heat 2 tablespoons sugar over medium-high heat until sugar begins to melt, shaking skillet occasionally to heat sugar evenly. Do not stir. Once the sugar starts to melt, reduce heat to low and cook about 3 minutes or until all of the sugar is melted and golden, stirring as needed with a wooden spoon.

  • Quickly drizzle caramelized sugar over custards. (If sugar hardens in the skillet, return to heat; stir until melted.) Serve immediately.
