fool proof company dessert in ramekins?

I would like to serve a room temperature or cold dessert in 7 oz ramekins, preferably something that can be prepared the day before our dinner party. I was going to make lime syrup puddings that I love and they're the reason I bought the ramekins, but they must be served hot from the oven (which I might go ahead and do if I can't come up with other ideas). Thanks for suggestions!

  1. This is good, sweet and tart and creamy:

    And this knocked me out the other day:
    I used dark brown sugar, not the special sugars called for, it was fine and delicious.

        Ooooohhhhh - that Butterscotch Pots de Crème looks fantastic. Now I am hungry!

        1. Any rich Pots de Creme, like the link suggested by blue room, chocolate, butterscotch, or a panna cotta, which is quite easy to make the day before serving. You don't have to turn out the panna cotta, just serve it in the ramekin if you'd like.

          There was a seasonal eggnog panna cotta recipe here at the recent eggnog thread, just good eggnog and gelatin, and was served with sauteed pear slices.

            I like this range of ideas. Top with a dollop of creme fraiche and chocolate shavings.

          2. Julia Child's Crème renversée au caramel -- totally easy, everyone loves it.

            1. Bread pudding with brandy.........mmmmmm...........
