03/07/2013 08:59 am ET

When it comes to caramel desserts, creme caramels are tops. They're similar to creme brûlée, but easier to make because you don't have to worry about making a sugar crust.

Don't be deterred when you see how long this recipe takes to make, it's finished in a slow cooker which means that once all the prep is done, you don't have to worry about it for hours.
