Capuccino Creme Brulees (Judges Recipe)

Great British Bake Off Desert - Cappuccino Creme Brulees
These incredibly rich and creamy coffee flavoured variations on the classic theme have a more unusual method for creating an extra-crunchy topping. Here the caster sugar is cooked to a caramel and allowed to set, then broken into shards. These are blitzed to a fine sand in a food processor before being sprinkled on to the custards and melted under the grill.

Toms Coffee and Amaretto Kisses

Carefully piped finger biscuits with two delicious fillings: a fluffy ganache of bitter chocolate and a coffee buttercream with amaretto.
Decorated with a lick of melted chocolate and a crunch of walnuts.
