This recipe calls for chocolate -- so much damn chocolate. And it's damn good! I am a huge fan of flan, and I am pleased to tell you there is a chocolate flan recipe. Que ricoooo.
What You'll Need:
For The Topping:
3/4 cup of sugar
1/2 cup of water
For The Flan:
1/2 cup of milk
1/2 cup of sugar
1/4 cup of unsweetened baking cocoa
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 can (12oz) of evaporated milk
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla
3 eggs beaten
How To Make It:
1) Preheat oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit. In a sauce pan, mix the topping ingredients and cover. Heat to boiling over medium heat for 1 minute. Uncover and cook sugar until it becomes golden brown. DON'T STIR. Carefully pour and swirl sugar into 6 (6-oz) custard cups.
2) In a 2-quart saucepan, mix 1/2 cup of milk, the sugar, cocoa, and cinnamon. Boil over medium-high heat, while stirring constantly with a wire whisk. Continue to boil for 1 minute -- keep stirring. Remove the heat and with a wire whisk, beat in evaporated milk, vanilla, and eggs. pour mixture evenly over sugar in custard cups.
3) Place custard cups in 13x9-inch (3-quart) glass baking dish. Place baking dish on center oven rack. Pour hot water into baking dish until it is halfway up sides of custard cups. Bake 50 to 55 minutes or until knife inserted near edge of custard mixture comes out clean. Carefully remove cups from water; cool slightly, about 5 minutes. Refrigerate until well chilled, about 50 minutes.
4) To serve, unmold flans onto individual dessert plates. If desired, top each with chocolate shavings. Cover and refrigerate any remaining flans.
