You only need four ingredients to make this cocoa-fied crème brulée: cream, eggs, sugar, and chocolate. You'll also need a kitchen torch, but trust me, that's worth the investment just because of how badass you'll feel when using it.

Chocolate Lasagna

It's sooo much easier to put together than the noodle and sauce variety, trust.
