How To Turn Your Simple Pudding Cup Into Fancy Creme Brûlée

Ending the day with a nice cup of pudding is always a great way to unwind and enjoy a quick and easy snack. If you’re looking for a way to fancy that pudding cup just a tad, look no further.

The cheap and easy to find dessert became a viral topic in Japan, reports SoraNews24.

Twitter user @PRpy8veMpF3rf67 posted a video with an ingenious hack that turns regular pudding into a decadent creme brûlée on the fly. The post garnered tens of thousands of reposts and more than 100,000 likes.

All you have to do is pop open a pudding cup and and pour some granulated sugar on the top layer. Then, turn on the stove and heat up a metal spoon. Taking the hot spoon, gentle press the head onto the layer of sugar above the pudding. The result should be a caramelized layer of sugar similar to a creme brûlée.

A word of caution, however, as the spoon you heat up will be too hot to eat your fancy new dessert with. You can either wait for it to cool down, or grab a second spoon.
