PREHEAT oven to 350° F.

COMBINE sugar and water in medium saucepan; cook over low heat, stirring constantly, for 3 to 4 minutes or until sugar is dissolved. Increase heat to medium-high; boil, without stirring, for about 15 minutes or until caramel-colored. Quickly pour over bottom and sides of twelve 6-ounce ramekins or custard cups (if syrup hardens, soften over low heat).

PLACE evaporated milk, sweetened condensed milk, cream cheese, butter, Choco Bake, eggs and vanilla extract in blender; cover. Blend well. Pour mixture into prepared custard cups. Arrange in 1 or 2 large baking pans; fill pans with hot water to 1-inch depths.

BAKE for 35 to 45 minutes or until knife inserted near center comes out clean. Cool in pans on wire racks for 20 minutes. Refrigerate for several hours or overnight. Run knife around rims; gently shake to loosen. Invert onto serving dishes.

A little advice

Just a word of advice, make sure to add at least 1 tsp vanilla extract when you are cooking the water and sugar. If you don't, then your caramel sauce will have a burnt taste.

chocolate cream cheese flan

I make a lech flan just like this recipe and it very good. My suggestion is to use egg yolks only but increase the amount to 8 egg yolks.

Soooooooo Good!!!

This is absolutely delicious. I used a 9 inch glass pie plate and 2-6 ounce ramekins. I placed the 3 dishes in one water bath & removed the 6 ounce dishes after 45 minutes. I removed the 9 inch pie plate after 2 hours. Perfect texture and taste. I hope this review helps!
