      Title: Chocolate vanilla double dip creme brulee
 Categories: Desserts
      Yield: 8 Servings
 
MMMMM--------------------------CUSTARD-------------------------------
    1/2 c  Milk
      2 c  Heavy (whipping) cream
    1/2 c  Sugar
      2    Vanilla beans, split
           Lengthwise
      6    Egg yolks - room temperature
           Blended with fork

MMMMM----------------------CHOCOLATE MOUSSE---------------------------
      5 oz Bittersweet or semisweet
           Chocolate, coarsely chopped
      4 oz Unsalted butter, chopped
      4 lg Eggs* separated, at room
           Temperature
      4 tb Sugar
           Plus
      6 tb Sugar for caramelizing
    1/4 ts Cream of tartar
 
  For the custard; place the milk, cream and sugar in a heavy medium
  sized saucepan. Scrape the seeds from the vanilla beans into the
  mixture and add the split skins too.  Bring to a boil over medium
  heat. Remove from heat and steep for at least one hour or until the
  mixture cools to room temperature.  Discard the split skins of the
  beans.
  
  Preheat the oven to 300 degrees. Place eight three inch ramekins in a
  large baking pan.  Pour enough water into the pan to come three
  quarters of the way up the sides of the ramekins.  Remove the
  ramekins and place the baking pan with the water in the oven to
  preheat for about 15 minutes.
  
  Whisk the six egg yolks into the cooled milk mixture.  Strain through
  a fine sieve into the ramekins, filling only about half full (leave
  room to add the chocolate mousse layer). Place the ramekins in the
  preheated prepared pan.  Bake in the preheated oven until set and a
  knife inserted into the custard comes out dry. *no time stated in
  recipe* Remove dishes from the water bath and cool to room
  temperature.
  
  For the chocolate mousse: melt the chocolate and butter in the top of
  a double boiler over gently simmering water until chocolate is smooth,
  stirring occasionally.  Cool until tepid, about 25 minutes.
  
  Using an electric mixer, beat the four egg yolks with two tablespoons
  of the sugar until a slowly dissolving ribbon forms as the beaters
  are lifted. Fold the tepid chocolate into the yolks.
  
  Using a clean dry beater and bowl, beat the four egg whites and the
  cream of tartar until soft peaks form.  Add the remaining two
  tablespoons of sugar one at a time and continue beating until barely
  stiff. Gently fold half of the whites into the chocolate mixture,
  fold in the remaining whites.
  
  Spoon the chocolate mousse over the cooled baked custards, smoothing
  the tops with a spatula.  Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate at
  least 4 to 6 hours or overnight.  Remove from refrigerator 30 minutes
  before serving.
  
  To serve, preheat the broiler (or use stovetop salamander or small
  propane torch).  Sprinkle a little less than one tablespoon sugar
  over each dessert.
  
  Place about two inches below the heat source and broil until the
  sugar is melted and caramelized, about two minutes, watching
  CAREFULLY. Serve immediately.
  
  NOTE:uncooked egg yolks may be contaminated with salmonella and
  should be avoided by young children, the elderly and anyone with
  immune system deficiencies.
