    L. Duch's Note:

    After having made flan recently,for the first time, I was inspired to how simple they are to make, so I decided to play around with different toppings. I came up with this. Very easy and really delicious. I hope you enjoy it.

      Put sugar and water into small sauce pan. Boil and reduce until a nice amber color or to 'hard crack' stage on your candy thermometer.
    10. 10
