A Cup of Caramel Custard

Spoiler alert – stay away from the woman with the teacup. When I saw “Get Out“, I thought “Finally, a use for my collection of teacups!” I wish I could control the people around me with my tea as well as Missy Armitage (Catherine Keener) does. Three clinks of her spoon and Chris (Daniel Kaluuya) is “Get Out” cold. You wonder if she makes Dean (Bradley Whitford) cluck like a chicken when they are alone. We like small desserts for our party so I will stretch this recipe to 8 servings for the party.
