some people even prefer to do it in advance, because it gives a chance for the custard underneath to firm up again in the fridge
if you want to make sure you have a nice crust, you can do a double round of sugar and torching it, then place it in the fridge

- Part of the joy of creme brulee for me is the contrast between the hot/warm crunch of the topping - KarenNoCA - 11:31am on 01/18/17

- I always thought it had to be cold? You want the cold custard versus the hard shell of the sugar - MarilynFL - 11:57am on 01/20/17
