Maple Hazelnut Custard

Last Updated on

I love custard in all its shapes and forms, whether it’s thick and creamy or light and eggy. This here is a rich and creamy version. It’s flavored with maple and vanilla and topped with chopped hazelnuts for some crunch. I love it and, yes, I ate all three of these little guys in one sitting.
