Review This Recipe
Nice change from traditional flan recipes
This is much easier to make than the traditional flan recipe a neighbor gave me years ago and the chocolate was a tasty addition. I agree with another comment that said suggestions for making one large flan would be a perk since there's times that's preferable. All in all this is great!
