3 cups baker's cream
6 tablespoons turbinado sugar

Preheat oven to 300F.

Whisk egg yolks until they turn bright lemony yellow.

Gradually whisk in hot chocolate mixture.

Divide custard among six 3/4-cup custard cups.

Place cups in large baking pan. Bake in a hot water bath until custards are set, about 50 minutes.

Remove from water; chill 2 hours.

Cover and refrigerate overnight.

Sprinkle each custard with 1 tablespoon sugar.

Broil with a butane torch until sugar turns golden, watching closely to avoid burning.

Refrigerate until custards are set, 1 to 2 hours.
