      Wow what a great dessert. This recipe has quite a few steps but the result is well worth it. The cream cheese changes the texture of the flan and makes it a bit thicker. It almost reminded me of cheese cake. The recipe called for 2 ounces of Mexican chocolate, but next time I will add more because it needs more of the Mexican chocolate/cinnamon flavor. Served this at a dinner party, and it was a hit. Thanks for the recipe. Made for The Love Train 2012.

      I had this recipe in my files from somewhere and decided to try it this past Mother's Day. It was absolutely fantastic. I made the whole recipe (for 12) and had three guests - there were NO leftovers. The chocolate blended quite well with the cream cheese and the flan made the dessert very rich and tasty.
