Chocolate Flan

posted on: Monday, December 19, 2011

Chocolate flan is easy to make, at least that's what Christian told me. Kidding. I've made flan before plenty of times. I am, after all, Brazilian and sweetened condensed milk is a staple in my home and in my diet. It's just that Christian took the traditional flan to a whole new level and made it into a decadent chocolate dessert. High-Five Christian!

On Christmas eve we're making chocolate flan. Maybe we'll even make two. Maybe we'll even make ice-cream flan. From what we hear it's tradition, here in Bahia, to eat a big Christmas Eve dinner at your house and then go to all your friends' and family's house and eat some more. We're not that popular but my teenage sis, who is living with us, is hugely popular so we might have to tag along and eat some desserts at her friends' house too.

And in case someone comes over to our house, we'll be waiting with open arms and chocolate flan and if we're feeling ambitious some ice-cream flan
