      WONDERFUL!! I made this recipe with small custard cups instead of charlotte molds, and each individual serving (once flipped over) was so pretty, and it was absolutely delicious! I made it for dessert for a Valentine's Day dinner, and my husband loved it. It was even better the next day. Great recipe!

      This is a great recipe, and deceptively simple to make. I used superfine sugar, for a smooth custard. I also used custard cups instead of a charlotte mold. I didn't make enough caramel, so I used some Smucker's caramel ice cream topping at the bottom of a few of the cups, and it was almost as good. This was even better than I've had at some restaurants!
