    Bunkie's Note:

    I had chocolate flan at a local Mexican restaurant, and it was to die for. I did an Internet search for a recipe, and came up with this one from - haven't tried it yet, but it sure sounds good!

      It looked like cat food sitting in gravy at first, but once you get over the looks, it tastes pretty richly chocolaty! Yum! It was a little hard to coat the pans and get them out without ruining the shape, but it was good stuff!
