And if we are going to do it, lets do it with some ready-made brownie bites for the base, ready-made caramel for a filling and homemade brûlée meringue to finish.

    I’m always up for semi-homemade… Especially when it looks as amazing as this! Also, just bought a torch from WE, but I had a gift card and it’d been on my list for a while. You’re right though. The regular propane torches are cheaper.

    The dessert looks chocolate and caramel…remember that, my darling Daughter In Law! I had to laugh at the vision of the danger of the torch and the drink! Laughter and sweets..I could get drunk on these alone! Carry on!
