Place pan on work surface. Cool custards in water 30 minutes.
Remove from water; chill overnight.
Preheat broiler. Sieve 2 teaspoons brown sugar atop each custard.
Place dishes on small baking sheet. Broil until sugar just starts to caramelize, rotating sheet for even browning, about 2 minutes. Chill until topping hardens, about 2 hours.

Recommended wine: Riesling, Sparkling Wine, Zinfandel
Riesling, Sparkling Wine, and Zinfandel are great choices for Southern. In general, there are a few rules that will help you pair wine with southern food. Food-friendly riesling or sparkling white wine will work with many fried foods, while zinfandel is great with barbecued fare. The Gunderloch Estate Riesling Dry with a 4.3 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 15 dollars per bottle.
